    Please count me in, i would also like some moss. Cabomba is really nice. Does anyone know where to find riccia? I've got a two meter log that needs a blanket.

    100+pro's 2-3cons...

    the main ones are the usual removal of ammonia/nitrates, its great for cover/breeding of fish and looks really cool...

    cons; is a mission to trim and ends up all over your tank.

    Oh and SARF just remembered if you still have that Ram I will swap you over 10 different types of moss "some VERY rare" for it, what you say?

    Its taken two years of intense searching to get that many types, I also have afew more that my stocks are too low to trade like;
    Plagiomnium affine
    Fissiden fontanus
    but now Iv come to realize it doesn't really work keeping lots of different kinds, it looks far better with lots of one or two types (my favorite being flame and spiky)

    @huxam, dude I literally have buckets and buckets full in Natal, Pm me in 2-3weeks I'll be home for the holidays..

    Hey man your best bet would be to contact leaquat (Altum) under the sponsors section, he gets in loads of really nice mosses every now and then and Im sure he would be happy 2 ship..
