Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #1250

I may not have been clear on my moss roundup.  What I was trying to say was 
that I have found what appear to be three (3) completely different aquatic 
mosses, and I was trying to give sources for those that wanted to 

1 - Java Moss (Vesicularia dubyana) - I have found this locally, and from AZ 
Gardens...it is more thread like than the others, and tends to be a medium 
green in my tanks

2 - Willow Moss (Fontinalis antiprecia) - I got this on aquabid, and it is 
darkest of the three, stiffer in the fronds, and seems to grow in a fan 

3 - Christmas Moss (name unknown) - I got this from LKL, and I also got what 
appears to be the same thing from aquaticplantdepot.com, but they are 
selling it as Vesicularia dubyana...the pictures look more like V. dubyana, 
but what I actually got looks too close to christmas moss for me to tell the 
difference, so I was suggesting that when LKL's supply runs thin, this is 
where we can turn for it.

I have had the Christmas moss and Java moss for long enough to see how they 
grow, and they are definitely different.  I have just gotten the 
aquaticplantdepot.com "java moss" so maybe when it settles in it will turn 
out to look more like v. dubyana, but right now, fresh out of the box, it 
looks just like christmas moss.


p.s.  has anyone else noticed that www.vectrapoint.com is back?  it closed 
before I ever got to see it, but it is there today :)
