 Hi,
 
 I  want  to  make  a  tree  like  structure  in  my  aquarium.
 
 I  learnt  that  it  can  be  achieved  using  drift  wood  and  moss.
 
 My  question  is  which  one  will  be  easy  to  create  in  a  aquarium  without  Co2,  low  light,  and  no  fertilizers.
 
 1)  Java  moss
 2)  Christmas  moss
 3)  Taiwan  moss
 4)  Flame  moss
 5)  Pellia  moss
 
 Please  remember  that  i  am  new  to  this  hobby  and  an  answer  like  the  moss  that  you  want  to  select  depends  on  the  type  of  tree  that  you  want  to  create  may  not  help  me  much.  Smile  
 
 Experts  please  make  me  understand  which  to  go  with  or  to  remove  bad  ones  from  the  above  list.
 Thank  you.

 Anyone  of  them  will  grow  and  do  well.
 Flame  will  look  erect
 Weeping  will  sag  down.
 If  you  find  true  Christmas  moss,  you  can  get  a  coniferous  tree  effect.  Nowadays,  all  moss  are  so
 mixed  up  and  corrupted,  you  don't  know  what  you  are  using.  I've  got  rid  of  every  bit  of  moss  in  my  tank.

 Hi  Learner..
 All  these  mosses  grow  in  the  same  condition,  But  I  would  recommend  the  x'mas  or  Taiwan  moss  (  If  you  can  differentiate  between  them).  Because  they  will  grow  very  compact  and  the  tree  will  look  very  natural..

 Most  of  the  beautiful  trees  of  moss  which  you  see  across  the  internet  need  all  the  3  which  you  told  you  don't  want  to  use  .  Sad   Also  without  proper  environment  its  just  a  matter  of  time  before  which  they  will  be  filled  with  algaes.
 
 Also  from  the  above  comments  i  guess  its  clear  you  can  basically  make  trees  out  of  any  moss.  But  before  that  I  would  suggest  you  to  see  whats  available(In  pure  form  as  Madan  sir  said)  in  your  LFS  or  what  ever  source  you  have.

 I  had  once  tried  to  make  a  moss  tree.  Was  successful  in  making  the  moss  tree.  But  had  to  dismantle  the  tank  while  shifting  to  a  new  place.   Sad  
 
 Here  are  the  pics  on  how  I  made  a  moss  tree.  I  had  used  Christmas  moss.
 
 Tied  small  branches  of  the  drift  wood  to  make  a  base  for  the  moss  tree.
 
 
 
 
 
 A  more  closer  look
 
 
 
 Tree  with  the  moss  attached  to  the  branches
 
 
 
 
 
 I  dont  have  any  photos  with  the  moss  fully  covering  the  tree..   Sad   Sad

 I  also  wanted  to  do  some  aqua-scaping  with  mosses  on  rocks!  Do  these  mosses  mentioned  above  grow  in  30  C???  I  will  be  using  fertilizers.

 low  temperature  is  one  of  the  most  important  factors  in  growing  moss.  Why  I  felt  so  is  recently  on  a  trip  to  chikmanglore  I  went  to  a  heaven  of  terrestrial  moss.  That  place  is  a  very  cool  place  with  lot  of  moisture.  I  beleive  even  the  aquatic  mosses  will  also  need  low  temperature.  So  my  strong  advice  is  dont  keep  moss  even  a  bit  above  26  degree  if  you  want  to  acheive  what  you  see  in  good  aquascapes.  Even  I  lost  some  xmas  moss  kept  in  a  nano  tank  when  there  was  more  temperature.Trust  me  Co2  and  light  is  not  that  important  if  you  are  ready  to  wait  a  little  longer  but  low  temp  is  a  must.
