The name Süsswassertang means “freshwater seaweed” in German, and is not a true aquatic moss. Often confused with Pellia, the Süsswassertang has a translucent green thalloid and feels like seaweed. The thalloids grows in a nice stratified pattern once established on hardscape. You can simply place Süsswassertang in the bottom of the tank or tie it to a driftwood/rock and watch it grow. Grows both in low and high light.
Süsswassertang is not a real moss and will never attach itself to wood or rock completely, it is a fern that thrives in the low light conditions. Then tied to wood it propagates itself by simply growing the clump larger.

*Please note that all our plants have been grown submerged and are gathered from our own tanks. Follow all regular procedures of adding plants to a established tank or new setup. As these are from established tanks please make sure that you clean plants properly before adding. We will give a salt and peroxide dip before they go.
