Hey guys, I just discovered what appears to be star moss growing in my backyard.
I've read that it's a terrestrial moss, but I've also heard of some people keeping it successfully in an aquarium. Could you verify that this is
star moss for me, and if you think it's worth experimenting with keeping it aquatically, just for fun? (The property I live on has been certified organic for 7 years, so no worries on pesticides). I wouldn't plan on keeping it in any populated tanks, (yet) just a kritter keeper or something.
Aquatic magic's picture of star moss, and others from the internet. (sorry for the drastically different sizes, but they're the best ones I could find)
Pictures of the stuff in my yard:
It's growing in a damp, rocky spot. (I am in western Washington, so it's pretty wet here)
