Can’t Grow Plants? Add This Practically Indestructible Plant To Your Aquarium And Finally Enjoy Dense, Luscious Growth
The Aquarium Co-Op™ Java Moss Mat ranks among the best plants for beginners. Versatile and low maintenance, its dense cover offers suitable hiding places for small fish and shrimp. Attached to a flexible wire grid, it wraps around decor to instantly add a naturalistic element to any aquarium.
Have you ever said, “I can’t keep anything alive,” or have sworn up and down that you don’t have a green thumb?
Widely available and multi-functional in its usage, Java Moss is a must-try for beginners because it’s easy to grow and tolerant of mistakes. With low light demands and no specific parameter requirements, Java Moss is a great choice for those working with live plants for the first time.
While Java Moss can free-float in your aquarium, we attach ours to a flexible wire grid. This makes it easy for you to set on top of substrate to start a carpet, or wrap around aquarium decor for a naturally aged look. In time, Java Moss will grab hold of and cover any desired surface, making it ideal for decorating hardscape or hiding equipment.
Although Java Moss has no specific fertilization requirements and can grow prolifically off fish waste, it’s considered a water column feeder and can benefit from a liquid fertilizer. Healthy Java Moss takes on a deep green color, grows densely in all directions, and has a stringy appearance.
Java Moss is also useful when breeding fish. Without anywhere to hide, defenseless fry can become an easy snack for larger fish. Java Moss provides natural cover for fry, improving your spawn’s survival rate. Additionally, the plant doubles as a safe place for spawning fish to drop their eggs, making Java Moss a natural alternative to yarn spawning mops.
The Aquarium Co-Op™ Java Moss Mat is a no-brainer for all aquarists, from beginners working with live plants for the first time, to breeders looking to maximize their spawning potential.
I had to read some of the bad reviews.....maybe some people should stick to fake plants. My 3 moss grids came In, I wasn't ready to put them in,, so they set on my counter for days in my 64-66 degree house. Finally took them out today. They were bright green and pretty. Maybe a lil flat for obvious reasons.......but I can't believe anyone got some in brown unless they left them out in the heat for a long time.
The brown things in the pic is bloodworms btw. Had to spoil them after they had to wait for their new tank to be set up a few days.
GREAT PRODUCT. COMES WELL PACKAGED ATTACHED TO STAINLESS STEEL MESH. EASY TO TAKE OFF AND PLACE IN TAKE OR ATTACH TO WOOD OR ROCK.
I first ordered this as part of one of the packages, but I liked it so much I placed an order of just the Java Moss. All the plants, but especially the moss, is doing great.
It does look like a carpet of grass. Easy to plant. Doing great after two weeks of growing.
Great plant very easy to grow. Big piece for a good price. Very happy with my purchase
