looking for java moss

I know there's probably around a billion places to get it online, but I'd like to get it from someone here. So, anyone looking to get rid of some Java moss?

Don't need much, looking for free/low cost + shipping. Whatever you want to get rid off, just let me know!

"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things: of shoes—and ships—and sealing wax—of cabbages—and kings—and why the sea is boiling hot—and whether pigs have wings."

"But wait a bit," the Oysters cried, "before we have our chat; for some of us are out of breath, and all of us are fat!"
"No hurry!" said the Carpenter.
They thanked him much for that.

I just got some, along with some Najas grass, and it hasn't had a chance to grow enough to divide yet or I'd offer to send you some.

I think eventually I'll have enough, but it will probably be months.

My one piece of advice? Even if you get it from someone you know, please quarantine or sanitize or you could end up with snails! I made that mistake and I've already found a tiny baby snail (pond or ramshorn) and I didn't want any snails other than the two Nerites I've already got so now I'll have to think about an Assassin snail (after relocating the Nerites, of course). Sigh.

Yeah, I've heard tell of hitchhiking snails (which is why I'm not looking at a LPS, everything local is notorious for snails!)

I wish I could help! If I had a few months it would probably be grown enough to share, but it's still adjusting to my tank and hasn't started growing yet.

Ok, the fissidens fontanus is also on my list of "must haves", so if you find some LET ME KNOW! And I actually saw my first riccia today at my LFS and it was really cool looking. Maybe in the next tank.

I've really fallen for riccia, so pretty!
