Coral Moss (Riccardia chamedryfolia), also known as Mini Pellia, is a rare liverwort from Southeast Asia.  This plant is a beautiful deep green that fares better in slightly higher lighting than many moss-like plants in the freshwater aquarium.  Like many similar plants, it provides refuge for shrimp and fish fry and makes for an attractive and useful grazing area for shrimp.  Coral Moss can easily be attached to driftwood and rockwork.  It is slow-growing and requires moderate light and, with patience and care, will grow into an expansive, lush mat.  With high humidity, it will even grow in a terrestrial environment!

Needs CO2 to get proper growth recommended.  Like many mosses, it does not typically respond positively to most chemical plant supplements.  Many aquarists report success with this moss purely through keeping a well-maintained aquarium with no supplementation.
