This rare, beautiful and lush fissidens originates from United States is the larger variant of the 2 phoenix feathers pattern fissidens. It is known as "Fissidens Fox" in Australia. We originally purchased this moss from a highly reputable hobbyist in Australia. It is larger than most fissidens known to the Australian aquarium hobby including the native Mount Glorious, Queensland fissidens. It is has a very beautiful, fine and lush appearance which makes it is a great addition to many aquascapes. It is best positioned over a rock or wood in the foreground or midground position. It can also be used as a foreground cover. Shrimps love this fissidens as it can feed on the rich amount of biofilm and organics trapped on its fine leaves.
This fissidens, besides being the larger variant of the 2 phoenix feathers pattern fissidens, is also the more expensive and rare variant as it only started really circulating in the Australian hobby from 2018 and is currently still very rare / rare. It is very new compared to the other smaller variant which was widely circulated in the Australian hobby since 2007.
