moss suggestions??

So I have seen moss in a lot of tanks and it looks really cool. I was thinking about adding some to one of my tanks which I am setting up for ghost shrimp or a snail, not sure yet. In all honesty it might just end up being a plant tank, but I was wondering y'alls opinions on what type of moss I should get and where to get it from since I have yet to find anywhere local that sells it.

Java moss is so easy to grow. I have at least half a bucket of it sitting at home that I took out of all my tanks. I don't do anything special, just natural light and no ferts.

If you want cheap and easy java moss is pretty much foolproof.

Agreed. Java moss is amazing!
I also like christmas moss, which is practically the same thing, the leaves just look like christmas trees.

What I would stay away from is:: Riccia, pellia, and subswassertang. (considered moss, but I dont think of them that way)

I didn't order any moss (except a Marimo, which is really an algae, lol) for my tanks but they sell it at plantedaquariumscentral.com. I was really happy with the other plants I got from her, and she gave me some extras too. :) If you use the code BETTAFISH (all caps) on checkout you'll get a discount.

To be honest with you, I didn't QT any of the plants I got from her last month - they just went right in the tank. No snails, and they are doing well so far.

If you want to QT it for snails, I should think a week would be enough for you to see them. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother with the QT as the moss is coming from a source that specializes in plants and it's not likely to come from an unhealthy environment.
