Bucephalandra Moss is a rare and truly beautiful miniature moss that has tiny leaves and grows extremely compact. It has a very bright green tone foliage which stands out from other mosses. In Aquarzon aquarium, it is used as a carpeting moss and as a moss to fill gaps between plants and hardscape which can create a very beautiful, natural aquascape effect.
Buce Moss originates from Southeast Asia, particularly Borneo. It is usually found growing on Bucephalandra which is the reason it was given the name Bucephalandra Moss. It can form a very good grip even on smooth surfaces such as acrylic when grown under high intensity lighting.
Although a number of sources state that it has a slow growth speed, we found it to have the ability to grow fairly fast under high intensity lighting and 30ppm Co2. This is why we believe it is important to have actual growing experience as a lot of information online may be recycled. Overall, we would rate this moss as having medium growth speed in higher tech tanks and slow growth speed in low tech tanks.
This moss can be sensitive to liquid carbon (glutaraldehyde) which is the active ingredient of Seachem Excel, BBA removers, etc. If using any of these products at full dose, it can cause the moss to turn brown.
