Java moss, an easy aquatic plant.


Java moss has gained popularity with the aquarium hobbyist however it is difficult to find in a pet store.  It’s surprising because Java moss requires no special lighting, looks amazing and grows in a variety of water conditions.  Shrimp (another recent favorite with hobbyist) and fry love to hide and eat algae off the moss.  It can also be used to make a moss wall instead of a backdrop and it improves your overall water quality.
