Christmas moss is a must have for all freshwater shrimp aquariums. Its many benefits to an aquarium lead to healthy shrimp which means more success when trying to breed shrimp. Christmas moss is also great for other freshwater tank inhabitants.
You will receive one portion of Christmas Moss. Usually, this is around the size of a golf ball. Portion size will vary.
When asked, “What is the most essential part to a successful shrimp tank?” we will always respond with three key factors: leaf matter, moss, and a piece of driftwood. Of the three key factors, Moss is our number one. Moss provides many benefits to an aquarium and even more benefits when keeping shrimp.
Moss, like other aquarium plants, will help convert an aquarium into an ecosystem. Moss will help reduce ammonia, nitrates and nitrites but its main benefit is in baby shrimp survival rates. Moss provides great refuge for young shrimp and also increases the surface area in which shrimp can graze. It is reported that moss is a great breeding ground for microorganisms which are essential to baby shrimp survival. On top of the many benefits, moss is extremely easy to keep and propagate. Although it grows slow, once established it is hard to kill. So if someone lacks a green thumb, moss is a great place to start.
*All Plants may contain snails or snail eggs. We keep them in all of our tanks for the benefits they provide.*

Not only the Christmas moss, the other plants I have bought from flip aquatics are doing great. Some of the plants, but not the Christmas moss did come with some snails. I don’t mind the snails, I welcome then into my ecosystem. My assassin snail, that I also received from flip aquatics, loves them. I just wish I knew the species of snail they are, I’m guessing physella acuta, but I’m not sure.
Very good mi fish love it.
