The Common or Kneiff's hook moss is already used in the aquarium hobby for a very long time, however it was mostly mistaken for Leptodictyum riparium (a.k.a. Amblystegium riparium). It is also popular as "Stringy moss" and "Vase moss". Drepanocladus aduncus is a widespread amphibious moss, also frequent in Europe, occurring in ponds, bogs, reed beds and on riverbanks. It develops lush cushions of upright, delicate shoots under water that are only little ramified with little lighting. At the water surface and on wet bottom it forms a matted layer. The shoot tips and leaves are often curved, claw-like.

Drepanocladus aduncus is a markedly undemanding, fast-growing moss that can be kept in cold as well as tropical tanks. It should also be interesting for emersed setups such as paludaria and Wabi-Kusa. The upright submerged stems don't attach themselves to surfaces. With good lighting and CO2 supply, the shoots are adorned with many oxygen bubbles.

Please be aware that the submerse form of this plant could contain snails and other invertebrates.



Aquasabi is our own brand, under which we offer high-quality products with a very good price-performance ratio. Carefully selected CO2 diffusers, CO2 bubble counters or lily pipes are just some of the items we sell under this brand and which will surely add to the value und the beauty of any aquascape. For this reason, many aquascapers and planted tank enthusiasts use products by Aquasabi.

Besides the good price-performance ratio, our main focus is on the satisfaction of our customers. This is the reason why our doors are always open for those who need help with our products.

When it comes to special aquatic plants, water plants from Aquasabi are just the thing for you. We offer rarities from our own cultivating tanks or import them specifically. These plants are otherwise hard to come by, and most of them cannot be purchased from other shops. We have high quality standards, which make Aquasabi plants a good choice for aquascapers, planted tank enthusiasts and aquatic plant collectors who want to enrich their tanks with rare aquatic plants. Special mosses, particular stem plants, hard-to-come-by ferns or very rare forms of the genus Bucephalandra are only a few of the plants we are proud to offer.

The moss I received is much smaller than I expected. It looks like nano moss. I do not know if I was given the wrong plant or if this is your drepanocladus but from the photos it... (read more)
