Hey guys, my Walstad 5 gallon shrimp tank has been taken over... Filter's clogged, light only reaches about 2 inches down, and I never see my shrimp . All this from a small packet of half dead Flame Moss from China lol . Also some Java Moss.

Anyways, its literally growing out of my aquarium. I want to clear it out bigtime. I'm just gonna ask for $7 per baseball sized hunk of Flame Moss, and $10 per baseball sized hunk of Java. Java is limited, Flame moss is pretty available. Buyer payes shipping. This stuff is gorgeous and grows amazingly. Pretty expensive to buy/find elsewhere too. PM me to get some!

Also, its growing on metal mesh, some of it. The mesh is about 3x5-6 inches, and super grown in and got about 4-5 inches of growth coming out the top. You can't see the mesh at all. I'll just sell ya that for $15. It'd be perfect for a carpet or something, glue it to your backwall, whatever.

Also for sale!!! Lots of dwarf sag, some hydrocotyle, Bacopa Compact, and Ludwigia Red

I want to see my lovely Fire Reds and Bloody Marys!

Could this flame moss be wrapped around rocks with some kind of mesh or stocking and still grow?

If I let the water gets too low yes . I'll give you the stuff that's grown out of the waer, and I have a lot growing on the filter floss that's sticking out of the water, I can give you that as well. It adapts to emersed quickly though.

Let me see.... I set it up around August of 2017. It had 2 small mesh sheets of flame moss, a crypt, an anubias, some Rotala, Water Sprite, and some HC Cuba. I trimmed the mesh flame moss, and made two more larger mesh sheets, but very sparesly mossed inside. Then I just pretty much left it alone except for 25% water changes weekly.

Its a 5 gallon bowfront acrylic aquarium. Heater is just a small 50 watt preset Tetra. Not my choice, I got this as a kit, it was my first tank. Originally when I got it, 2 years ago, I didn't know anything about fish keeping. I got some TSS+, Tetra Water Dechlorinator, Tetra Glofish food, and a hood with a small blue light. I unknowlingly threw the gravel and fake decorations in, filled it up, put in dechlorinator and TSS (I had no idea why I needed TSS, dechlorinator made sense, and got 2 GloFish tetras from walmart (White Skirt Tetras). Filter was running, and filter floss thrown out every 2 weeks . Then I got 2 more. They did get weekly gravel vacs and 25% water changes, but it was probably nowhere near enough for them. Then I got on FL about aquascaping... lol. With my plastic plants and glowing gravel. Had some people tell me I had some stocking issues, and it went from there. Now I have a reef, high tech tank, and this one.

The tank has a Lowe's work lamp, with a 8000k floodlight LED. Probably around medium light. When I first started it, I got a few issues with some green algae, but once the plants outcompeted it, which was not long, less then a month, I've had no algae and healthiest plants ever. The tank is dirted and capped with PFS. Filter is a small tetra whisper 10 which is clogged with moss right now, barely trickels. Usually there's a big airstone in there but right now the airstone is being used in QT. Inhabitants are Bloody Mary Shrimp and Fire Shrimp.

Got the moss today. Thanks.
