Item specifics

Item Subtype: LIVE Plants Condition: New
Item Type: Plants

Java Moss Portion 100g

Ideal for small fish or fry to hide in


Java moss comes in a variety of forms depending on the local conditions in which it is grown.  Sometimes it is in small segments, sometimes longer loose strands – it is all the SAME plant. 


The moss may sometimes contain small sticks or similar, this is because it is grown outdoors in ponds by suppliers, these are harmless.  We try and remove all we can as they may be a little unsightly however the best thing to do is soak and wash the moss in a bucket of tapwater.


You then need to attach the moss to bogwood, stone or other ornament in your tank.  Use thin fishing line or cotton thread for this – tie the thread around the bogwood at one end and knot.  Then spread your moss along the wood, and wrap the thread around and around the wood until you reach the other end.  Then go back across the other way to create a mesh effect that will keep the moss in place until established.  Tie off once finished.  You can also use a similar method to tie the moss to a mesh to create a wall of moss in your tank.


The moss will take a few weeks to adjust and establish and you can help with good lighting, water movement and water quality.  A good fertiliser is always welcome too.


Add an attractive living decoration to your aquarium.

Perfect for aquatic shrimp to graze on.

Extremely easy to keep!

It is used to breed many species of fish as a substrate and as a hiding place for young fry.

 It is an undemanding species and possibly the easiest of all aquatic plants to cultivate.

 Slow to start growing at first, it will, once acclimated start to grow over roots and rocks etc becoming an attractive feature of your home aquarium.
