    I only have pictures to go by, the water where I got these from was fast moving; hard & alkaline, and also was most likely around 58F degrees to low 60F degree waters.. Thanks in advance for the help it is greatly appreciated.

    At Mirror Lake, doesn't look like java moss. I have java moss, but maybe its a temperature thing. This moss is a lot thicker feeling, and the "leaves" aren't as large. Java moss I have in the tank is, java moss.

    i'm betting since North America that its some type of fontinalis...

    The one below looks similar to umbrella moss

    Mirror Lake in Vermont? The flat, tongue-like plant is some sort of thalose liverwort. I have found the same or similar species in Ontario growing on emergent rocks in a stream and around a seepage from an old limestone dam. It was strongly attached by fine brown hairs. I tried to grow it in my current tank (my 1st real planted tank, low tech learner/experimental). It grows but lost it's form and does not attach underwater. The attached image is one of two remaining fragments after several months. I was wondering if it work out better if dry started on a rock or log before being submerged.

    I've been looking at a lot of mosses myself but I'm a bit lost without a decent reference. I have learned that many mosses have different terrestrial and aquatic growth forms and these can be quite different (this can be seen at any shaded vernal pool in May/June vs July/August). Most ID resources will show the terrestrial form. Maybe put a sub set on some wet substrate in a tupperware and see what it ends up looking like.

    Mirror Lake in Arkansas. If its fontanalis that would be neat.

    If it does not attach under water you might do is wrap it around a rock with net like one does with riccia.
