Hello,

I saw the Flamemoss in an American Shop, but it was much expensive (about $30 per 5x5cm) but I really really like it!! How does it grow?? Faster or lower than proper mosses?

Michael,

It grows at a rate like Taiwan moss. It was expensive here too, newly tied on 5x6cm mess was $S50 !

Hey,

thanks for your reply, but I don't keep Taiwan Moos ;) But I would say a bit lower than Javamoss or Singapuremoss??

silane

Yeah, Java moss grows the fastest of all.

Might be, but I made the experience, that Singapuremoss also grows very, very fast! :) And it looks much better ;) :D

in what water conditions do you keep your Moss, and how long do you keep it, that it has such a mass??

Singapore Moss can look very nice in cold temperature.

The moss was kept in around 6.8 and 27 to 28C. To grow that mess, it took about 3 months.

Thats not that long time!! :)
Can you show us your other mosses? Would be interesting to see the different species :)

You can see pictures of different types of mosses at aquamoss.net (http://www.aquamoss.net/Moss-List.htm
). This is one of the more comprehensive and complete lists anywhere with loads of good info.

I envy you guys, in my country I can find only 2 o 3 different sp. of mosses, and I am a lucky man, was working in Tropica Iberia for a while, so I got some interesting moss stuff, as Riccardia and Leptodictyum riparium.

wow. Did not know that so many of you like fire moss as well :D

Like you guys, I like fire moss too. But they seems to be growing at a slower pace than Taiwan Moss

It need high CO2 to grow well, they grow thiny in a non-CO2 enivroment.

Just like normal moss but since it grows upwards, you'd want to tie it with string/line that is pretty invisible that doesn't decay.
I think it sticks to wood but not sure how long after it's tied.

do you have co2 injection in your moss tanks? would co2 significantly impact their growth rates?

CO is not a must for Flame. At this very moment I keep it with CO set turned off along with
Vert-Christmas Moss - Vesicularia sp
Weeping Moss - Vesicularia ferriei
Giant Willow-moss - F. ant. Gigant
Nanbei Moss - Versicularia sp. 'nan bei'
Wiror Moss - Fontinalis sp. 'japan'
Fissidens cf. fontanus 'Grande'
Anker-moos - Taxiphyllum sp.
Creeping Moss - Vesicularia sp.
Crescend Moss - Drepanocladus aduncus
Mini Taiwan-moss - Isopterygium sp.
Pellia - Monosolenium Tenerum
Stringy Moss - Leptodictym riparium
Peacock Moss - Taxiphyllum sp
Ricardia chamedryfolia
Pearl Moss -Blepharostoma trichophyllum
Singapore Moss - Vesicularia dubiana
Fenix Moss - Fissidens fontanus
Giant-moss - Taxiphyllum sp. 'giant'
All those mosses do not require additional CO.
