Java Moss (Vesicularia dubyana) is one of the easiest to grow of all the commonly available aquatic plants. It’s hardy nature and striking green coloration makes it a favorite among aquarists, and it can be found in aquariums throughout the globe.

Java moss is especially sought out for breeder tanks, as it provides numerous benefits to the tank. The densely growing moss provides a perfect refuge for any newborn fish and it also has the added benefit of providing food to the tiny fry. Numerous types of microscopic infusoria live on the long tendrils of moss, and provide a veritable feast for the hard to feed baby fish.

Growing Java Moss is incredibly easy and unlike many of the more finicky plants, it doesn’t need any special lighting or added nutrients. It will even thrive in aquariums with very low lighting, and may actually start to suffer if placed in aquariums with overly bright lighting. When placed in a brightly lit aquarium, it usually becomes blanketed in algae, and may eventually die if it becomes totally covered.

Adding to the ease of caring for Java Moss is the fact that it doesn’t need to be planted. To prevent the Java moss from constantly moving around the aquarium, most people with attach it to rocks or driftwood.
