Fissidens fontanus


Fabulous moss from Southeast Asia. Its delicate appearance gives it a very special character. Tied on a stainless steel grid, it can be placed directly on the ground. Or you can remove it from the grid and tie it directly onto stones and wood. In this way, you can achieve beautiful, realistic effects in the design of an aquarium. Like all mosses, Fissidens also likes fresh and clear water, CO2 additions significantly promotes growth.
