Mostly Brown

Most of my moss arrived very brown, with few pieces as an olive green color. Placed in a grow tank because I don’t want my main tank to have something looking as nasty as that in it. Hopefully it’ll grow. Disappointed with my purchase because I was hoping for something that represented the advertised picture a little better.

Half Brown

I thought the java moss would come in all vibrant green colored, but unfortunately about half of the clump was brown and unattractive. I placed it still in the aquarium with hopes that the surviving parts will grow out.

Java Moss

I was cautious on ordering anything relating to aquatic life forms through the mail but was quite pleased. The ordering and packing was very professional and quick. At first the moss looked very brown and thought I had a clump of dead moss. After a few days the moss has steadily started to show more green and growth. I will surely purchase from this company again.

Java Moss

The plant came in great condition, generous portion too.

Java Moss

The fish seem to like to pick at it (a good find). I hope it grows fast!
