Whats this plant


Recommended Posts

I'm not great with identifying plants, but it looks like a type of moss to me. My initial thought is flame moss since it's growing pretty straight upwards. Moss all looks pretty much the same to me. I'm sure someone with more knowledge can tell you exactly what kind it is.

I think the moss you circled is Java Moss. I have it growing in two of my tanks. Here's two pictures so you can see the difference. Flame Moss has a very unique characteristic of the way it curves and waves, kind of like a flame...hence the name. Java just grows straight up and is a tad more delicate.
