Distichophyllum "Maibarae" Moss
Distichophyllum "Maibarae" Moss is a upward growing moss that looks similar to Hookeriaceae moss. It is a fairly easy moss to grow, yet still fairly rare in the hobby. It is a moderately slow growing moss. This does great tied to moss ledges, driftwood, cholla wood, and coconut shells.
I find upward growing mosses like Maibarae, Hookeriaceae, and Flame moss are great for shrimp and fish fry, as it is easy to hide in, but still gets enough flow through it to attract some passing food particles.
The 1x2" plant flat will be freshly tied with Maibarae Moss, and may take a couple weeks to fully acclimate to your aquarium and begin growth. Moss enjoys lower pH, clean and cool water (<74°F), and a good mature tank. Moss does not do great in an uncycled tank.
