Everything you should know about Christmas Mosses

Who doesn’t love to decorate their aquariums? You can decorate your aquarium with beautiful greens available online. Christmas moss is one of the most widely available, beautiful yet low maintenance greenery available on online stores. If you are preparing an aquascape in your house or at your work space, you can definitely keep some of it in your aquascape and it will increase the beauty of the project for sure. Most of the designers know about it and the beautiful appearance and easy to maintain nature is loved by all the aquascapers out there. 


Reason behind such name:

So why is it called Christmas Moss? Well, if you take a closure view, you will see that small side branches of this moss look exactly like the fir tree branches. This is the simple reason that people call it Christmas moss. The greenery of Amazon always amaze us with its variety of flora and fauna and this time it came up with the exceptionally beautiful moss. The Christmas Moss originates from Brazil. In most of the cases, aquascape plants need plenty of carbon dioxide to live a healthy and long life. But in the case of Christmas moss, the requirement of CO2 is pretty less. It can survive on low amounts of carbon dioxide. 


Perfect habitat for your mosses:

We all know that moss loves cold and dark atmosphere. So if you can create that perfect condition in your aquascape, the moss will grow properly and wonderfully. Christmas moss is one of the most low maintained greeneries in the world. But like every other plants it also needs a proper temperature range to bloom. If you keep the temperature of your aquarium below 77 F then the moss will bloom in a proper way and you will be able to get the most out of it. It doesn’t matter if the aquarium is lit or dark, the moss will definitely look beautiful with all the other plants, greeneries and every other element of the aquascape. 


How to turn it into a self sustaining system?

Won’t you like it if your aquarium is a self sustaining one? Well, if you put Christmas moss in your aquarium, it can be converted into a self sustaining one. This beautiful moss is the perfect hideout and playing spot for your fishes and your shrimps. They can hide within the bushes of the moss and of course they can play around it as well. Besides all of these, this is the perfect home of Infusoria. These are small invertebrates and unicellular algae. Your fish and shrimp feed on infusoria. If you plant Christmas moss in your aquarium, it provides plenty of infusoria and your fish will simply love this food. They can live on this food and hence you will be able to prepare a self sustaining aquarium. 


How it recreates natural habitat

Christmas moss recreates the natural habitat for the fish, shrimps and other aquatic animals that you are going to pour into your aquarium. When you fetch something out of its natural habitat, it cannot cope with the new atmosphere and in most of the time dies easily. If you want your fish and aquatic species to live happily, you need to create a home space for them in this new place. Christmas moss will definitely help you in that. It creates the same atmosphere and the same amount of oxygen and carbon dioxide balance can also be available here. So your fish will stay happy and healthier under such circumstances. 


Availability 

Besides all of that, the most effective point of bringing Christmas moss to your aquaspace is the reason of their availability. If you search online aqua stores, you will get them easily. No matter which part of the world you live in, they are available online across the year. You can also search for those online shops that sell this product to other countries as well. You will be able to get your Christmass moss sitting on the other side of the world and that is the reason that most aquascapers totally love it.

 

Benefits of keeping Christmas Moss

This is one of the most sought after mosses in the aquascaping community, forming dense, bright green leaves in a triangular ‘pine-like’ branch structure.  Christmas moss can add an unexpected element and texture to your aquascape, filling in gaps and creating a contrasting living backdrop.

Layering moss to add texture to bonsai driftwood is a very popular trend amongst aquascapers. Anchoring the moss to tree-like structures creates the illusion of a flourishing, miniature tree growing underwater.

EASY TO MAINTAIN - You do not need any extra Co2 or special lighting. For maintenance, you can trim this plant every few weeks or leave it to grow into a wild looking moss forest for your fish to hide out 

 

FOOD SOURCE FOR SHRIMP AND FRY - This moss can harbor infusorians. These are minute organisms that are a vital first food for newborn fry. Shrimp may also like to feed off the microorganisms on the moss wall.

 

SOFT AND COMFORTING FOR FISH - This moss is not only beautiful but practical too. It will provide a safe place for shrimp, fry, and betta to hide in when they feel stressed. This is especially useful in a breeding tank.

 

CREATE A MOSS WALL OR MOSS CARPET - Sandwich this lush piece of aquatic moss in between plastic or metal mesh, this will create an attractive, green backdrop in your aquarium.

 

PROVIDES SOME OXYGEN - Like plants in general, moss sucks up CO2 and release oxygen in the water. If you don’t like noisy air stones, this moss is a great addition to help you oxygenate your tank.

 

SUCKS UP NITRATES , AMMONIA AND OTHER NASTIES, ALSO HELP TO REDUCE ALGAE - Byproducts of fish waste, nitrates are harmless to most healthy fish under 30ppm, but as their numbers increase over time, they can stress and kill your fish. it’s usually not a large amount. Still, any nitrate absorbent is a benefit to your tank’s ecosystem.
