Benefits of using Java Moss with guppies
Provides biofilm, hiding places, and security for the young when you place it in a breeding tank. Java Moss
is also known to remove pollutants from the water, greatly reducing the need for water changes and preventing "smelly tank syndrome”.
Vesicularia dubyana is typically the first aquarium plant tropical fish hobbyists begin with because their beautiful and simple to maintain and they offer a number of the aforementioned benefits. This moss is known to grow along driftwood, rocks and other surfaces. A popular trend these days is to create a Java Moss backdrop called Java Moss mesh. The plant adheres to the mesh creating a gorgeous wall of green plants, the perfect back drop. Alternatively the mess can be used to sculpt shapes such as along driftwood and so forth.
Java Moss also called Taxiphyllum barbieri, is widely used by aquarists as a spawning medium. Live bearers like guppies benefit from allowing their fry to hide among Java Moss as well as egg scatterers such as barbs and characins will scatter their eggs onto the Java Moss, and the moss prevents the fish from devouring their eggs as the eggs would have fallen into the moss. It is also the perfect spawning medium for the plant spawners group of killifish, where a clump of Java Moss, Taxiphyllum barbieri, can be introduced into a small tank with the guppies or killifish, and the moss can be collected a week later, which will be full of eggs.
is the perfect filter medium for fry rearing especially for guppy fish. Other than providing micro-organism for the growing fry, the Java Moss, Taxiphyllum barbieri, soaks up all the waste products produced by the fry and the leftover foods. From my years of experience in breeding fish, it has showed that the fry grows faster and healthier when they are reared together with Java Moss. Well, in actual fact, any other aquatic plants would have the same effect, but Java Moss, Taxiphyllum barbieri, is a much more hardy plant, and it can even grow in low light level. You could just dump a clump of the moss into the tank and all your worries will be over.
Live plants have many agricultural uses, such as removing waste and excess nutrients from hydroponic systems, fighting algae and bacterial growth in farm ponds, and keeping educational aquariums clean. This is the famous Java Moss, which probably needs no introduction. It is easily the most popular and easy-to-grow live moss in the aquarium hobby, and it is also one of the most beautiful. This is a 5"x5" section of moss, which is enough to start 4-6 patches that will grow out quickly. Excellent for dwarf shrimp, which is also for sale (search "InvertObsession" - combined shipping discounts available!).

Java Moss also removes pollutants from the water, greatly reducing the need for water changes and preventing "smelly tank syndrome."
