This is an AquaBonsai original:

A handmade Moss Man to be placed as a plant for your tank, or even a simple glass bowl, filled with water. Bettas love Moss Men. His java moss fur will continue to grow as long as there is water and light. He will keep your fish and crustaceans company.

Java Moss has been meticulously hand tied to a non-toxic substrate. The substrate consists of crushed lava rock that ensures and promotes a healthy tank. It is porous and plants easily grow and actually thrive on such a surface. Aquarium sealant has been used to coat the skeleton and fix the substrate in place.

The skeleton base is wire frame, so your bonsai is posable. You can bend the limbs to any position desired.

Measures 7 inches high, 4 inches across at shoulders. Photos show growth of moss.

Shipped USPS Priority Mail for domestic and International customers, insured, packed wet and immersed in water.

Please keep in water at all times. Instructions for care will be included.

A: Yes all Aqua Bonsai are covered with live, aquatic, freshwater moss that needs to be constantly wet to survive. These are best suited to freshwater aquariums.
A: Yes, I frequently create custom orders. I can create much larger or much smaller custom orders. If you can imagine it, I can create it.
A: I use a combination of wire frame, crushed lava substrate, and sealant.
A: Yes. All Aqua Bonsai are safe for all aquatic residents. I have personally kept mine with high-grade Discus, plecos, shrimp, and other sensitive aquatic residents. Not one customer in over 200 sales has ever reported losses of fish due to Aqua Bonsai. These living art pieces, double up as a filter by giving beneficial bacteria many porous spots to grow.
