Subwassertang on Slate Rock

Choose Quantity

Lomariopsis Lineata also known as Subwassertang. It's a very rare yet popular in aquascaping. It' undemanding and easy to maintain. They preferred cooler water and grow best in good lighting, CO2 and rich nutrients environment. Like any other mosses, it can be attached to rock, stone, driftwood and any aquarium decorations. 

At first glance, it appears very similar to the liverwort Monosolenium, but it is actually neither a moss nor a seaweed, but prothalli of the fern Lomariopsis Lineata.

The differences between Lomariopsis Lineata & Monosolenium Tenerum


Lomariopsis Lineata / Süsswassertang: Thinner, Light Green & Not As Fragile

The entire thallus is thin like a membrane (only one layer of cells thick), there is no midrib. Broad round lobes, the tip is never truncated. There are rhizoids (hairlike adhesion organs fulfilling the function of roots) at irregular distances on the underside, also near the margin of the thallus, often in groups. The thallus is more transparent and of a darker green, more flexible and less fragile than Monosolenium.

Monosolenium Tenerum / Pellia Moss:Thicker, Dark Green & Very Fragile

The thallus is stronger, more than just one layer of cells thick. The tips are less rounded, clearly visible, elevated on the underside, densely covered by rhizoids. In the tissue, oil body cells are visible, as tiny light-colored (when viewed with incident light) or dark-colored (when viewed with transmitted light) spots. The plant is very fragile. The branches of the thallus grow upright under low light and develop a very narrow habit.
