CHRISTMAS MOSS AKA XMAS MOSS (VESICULARIA MONTAGNEI)

Mini Christmas Moss (Vesicularia montagnei), also known as "Mini Xmas Moss," is a rare, but very popular and attractive species of creeping moss for the freshwater aquarium.  This is a great plant to keep in any freshwater aquarium due to its low lighting requirements and ease of care.  It grows into bushy patches that are always a favourite hiding place for shrimp and fish fry.  It also provides cultivation areas for tiny live food sources such as infusoria and biofilm.  Once established in the aquarium, Mini Christmas Moss fronds appear very bushy and have the appearance of pointy, miniature pine trees.

This is a very easy plant to keep without much extra care, but like all plants, it can benefit from CO2 supplementation, although this is not required.  Like many mosses, it does not typically respond positively to most chemical plant supplements.  Many aquarists report success with this moss purely through keeping a well-maintained aquarium with no supplementation.


    The size of these shoots gets smaller towards the thallome top and this shape resembles a triangle or a fir-tree shape. This is where the moss name came from. When its branches grow to reach some certain length, they bend under their own weight like those of a weeping willow.

    What We Like About This Plant:

    • An excellent (and potentially more attractive) alternative to Java Moss
    • Can be attached to almost any aquarium décor or left floating in loose form
    • Low light requirements
    • Little to no supplements needed

    Care Guidelines:

    • Temperature: 65° - 77° F (18.3° - 25° C)
    • pH: 5.0 - 7.5
    • Lighting: Low to moderate
    • Origin: Farmed in Asia, but indigenous to Southeast Asia
    • Aquarium placement: Any
    • Care: Easy

    Other things to consider before placing an order:

    * Check to see if your tank has enough space.
    * Ensure your tank is fully cycled.
    * Ensure your new livestock is compatible tank mates for any other fish you currently have (in terms of habitat, species, requirements, temperament, and size)
    * Ensure that your water parameters, habitat and temperature are suitable for the species you want to introduce.
    * Do not stock your tank too quickly, or suddenly a large influx of fish can unbalance your water parameters that will affect the water quality.
    * Do not feed your new fish for 24hrs. They need time to settle in and feel at home. Feeding them too quickly puts their health at risk, and it can even affect your water quality. If you have existing fish in your aquarium, feeding them before releasing the new fish is a good idea.
    * Don’t be alarmed if, upon arrival, your fish, shrimp or snail look pale or lethargic. This is normal behaviour while in transit, and they should return to full colour and vibrancy after settling into their new home for a few days.


    Also, be aware that livestock often gets stress and lose their colours after the long travel to you, this often happened to most livestock ( shrimps, guppies, plecos, and so on, kindly make sure you have the right set up, the aquarium must be fully cycled with the ideal parameters. Fishes and shrimps will often take from 3-7 days to fully adapt to the new home. If you have any concerns with your set up kindly talk to us or check out some online tutorials before purchase.
