Java Moss

Java 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. Java moss is also great for other freshwater tank inhabitants.

You will receive one portion of Java Moss. Usually, this is around the size of a golf ball. Portion size will vary. 

Main Benefits:

  • Helps convert toxins in the water and heavy metals into safe organics 
  • Promotes oxygen rich water
  • Provides hiding places for shrimp and baby shrimp
  • Creates a natural feeding ground for baby shrimp
  • Reduces the stress on shrimp by providing more surface area

More Information: 

When asked, “What is the most essential part to a successful shrimp tank?” we will always respond with three key factors: leaf matter, java moss, and a piece of driftwood. Of the three key factors, Java Moss is our number one. Java moss provides many benefits to an aquarium and even more benefits when keeping shrimp.

Java Moss, like other aquarium plants, will help convert an aquarium into an ecosystem. Java moss will help reduce ammonia, nitrates and nitrites but its main benefit is in baby shrimp survival rates. Java moss provides great refuge for young shrimp and also increases the surface area in which shrimp can graze. It is reported that java moss is a great breeding ground for microorganisms which are essential to baby shrimp survival. On top of the many benefits, java 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, java moss is a great place to start.
