	[Kelly Beard]  I visited the Tennessee Aquarium this weekend and saw
a submerged moss growing on driftwood and rocks in one of their "native"
biotopes.  I asked the guide standing their if she knew what it was called,
she didn't.  It looked amazingly like Amano's willow moss.  I almost reached
in the tank and grabbed a piece, but I had nothing to put it in and there
were too many turtles!

	Anyway, I'd sure like to have a piece of it.  Might have to go back
to the aquarium with a plastic bag.  :-)
