That is bizarre. Banning Java Moss. Although, it's not the first time I've heard of this. There was someone in Maine, I believe, that frequents this forum and couldn't buy any number of things for their tank because it was banned from the state. I don't remember if it was shrimp or plants, though. Or neither. Still bizarre.
And that piece of driftwood is killer. It's like a rotini noodle or something.
