    Wow, from spiky moss pictures they do all seem to be mini bushes. Is it the brightest and densest though?

    Hi,

    There is another moss called layer moss. I think it is newer type and more expensive moss now.

    Hi rcw san,

    Bioplast Mr.Tan said layer moss = anchor moss. Got mine from him.
    It is growing "in layers" in my nano tank. Here's (http://www.aquaticquotient.com/forum...-them-Part-XII) more info about this moss. This moss is the densest moss in my tank and is also the lightest shade of green compared with the others.

    Weeping moss is definitely not layer moss. Weeping moss grows downwards ("weeps") as it grows.

    Layer moss not equal to anchor moss. They have different names, but they may belong to the same moss family name as mentioned by Prof.

    Thanks for the info Jamesneo.
    Here's 2 fotos from my tank of the layer moss. Perhaps you can show us a foto for the anchor moss.

    I do not have anchor moss now or any pictures to show. I used to keep them few years back.
    I do have some layer moss but it is not mature now and cannot see the layering effect.
    However i do observe that the layer moss has narrower and smaller triangle edges than anchor. Just my observation.

    Spiky is very easy to grow and hence and it easily grow out if hands. Trimming is always a big headache. I gave up and remove Spiky from my tank when I did a rescape.
    Shrimps love to hid in them though.

    Here's mine. Finally some results after 3 months. I just like the fronds. A achievment for me as mine is non-chiller tank.
