Mayaca fluviatilis, the River Moss herb is widespread in tropical and subtropical America from the southeastern United States to Argentina. This delicate moss-like stem plant grows both emersed and submerged and often occurs at the edge of black water streams. The species is variable, there are forms with slightly differing characteristics.
This plant prefers the aquarium soft water with a pH in the acidic range, but can be kept even in harder water. It is also a good indicator of iron, because in case of low Fe content, the shoot tips of the plant brightly color, which can be corrected by iron therapy immediately but. A good nutritional balance is therefore very important. They also require adequate amounts of CO2 as well as good lighting.

Approximately 30cm long Moorkienwurzel
Genuine Moorkien Wood is a valuable natural product which 'won' for example raised bogs in Schleswig-Holstein is. These raised bogs are from 9.000 v. Chr. This resulted in that the digested sludge has settled in meltwater lakes and let slowly silt up the lakes and Versumpfungsgebiete. It was the first form of the moor, the fen. They consist of the rotting plant remains and it formed swamp forests of alder and birch, in other parts of Germany as well as with conifers and other species. So there are the first Moorkienwurzeln 'recognized' and it takes about 2,000 years to this biological miracle first Bruchwaldtorf arises. The gradually emerging Torfpolster slowly suffocate the swamp forests and other 1500 years ie 5500 v. Chr. Vertorfen the last dead peat mosses. The High Moor is born and now needs only nutrient-rich rainwater which ensures the growth of the bog by about 1 mm per year. True Moorkienwurzeln can therefore be up to 10,000 years old, which is still a very impressive age for a aquarium decoration.
In this long-term process which Moorkienwurzeln (Bruchwald) are downright preserved. Responsible for this is the Moor's biochemistry, which consists of an excess of water which ensures oxygen deficiency and this has a low pH. In addition, humic acids, which largely make sure to inhibit microbial decomposition of Moorkienwurzeln in this composition. Other important characteristics of the bog are a high pollutant purity and phosphate and nitrogen poverty. Properties which our Moorkienwurzeln positively come to good.
Around the year 1630, the first in Germany peat was mined. The peat was stung in arduous manual labor and used as fuel. The Moorkienwurzeln was paid no more important at this time. Just as the benefits of this resource has verädert over the years, so did the type of degradation has evolved. Today the peat is decomposed in layers of large machines. Tree trunks and other resistors are removed from the blades with. In a Moorkienwurzel but these machines are not further reduce the peat able. The Moorkienwurzeln be pulled out and stored in a heap as 'waste' until they schließich in autumn.

20 Neocaridina heteropoda var. Sakura + regularly pups
One assumes that there is a high breeding form of the popular Red Fire / Red Cherry Shrimp in Sakura shrimp. Buyer should make sure to get a good selection of animals breeding. This means that the existing breeders continuously operated selection and the somewhat more colorless animals has rejected. Even from opaque colored females may emerge relatively colorless babies if the trunk is not erbfest and "get involved" less colored animals.
