  • Special Considerations: Pellia Moss can be sensitive to high levels of dissolved organics, so regular water changes are important. It thrives in a well-established tank with stable water parameters.

By providing these parameters and conditions, Monosolenium tenerum can create a lush, carpet-like appearance in your aquarium, adding a beautiful and natural look to the underwater landscape.
