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-OpJava 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.

First order and thrilled

I reached out to see if it would ship to my area and got a quick response, then promptly ordered. I got the moss and I found a present in the box with my order. They rocked it on every front, 0 complaints about the product, customer service, or general shipping and they went above and beyond. Highly recommend aquarium coop. I also recommend this product: the moss mosses mossily--Oh it is also a lot of moss, they tie that sucker down on the mat pretty thick. That was a welcome surprise! Such a relief having a great online order experience with live products.
