Hey everyone!
I've been making water terrariums for a while now, adapting certain plants to a water existence through water plant additives, water lice, and a strandy, moss like plant. While it grows profusely, I was interested in buying some more, but can't identify what exactly it is. I've uploaded some of my own pictures, as well as one I've been able to find online of it with no name descriptor. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I've had that plant in a few of my tropical fish tanks many moons back. Can't tell what it is, but I bet if you take one of those photos to a tropical fish store, they will know, and probably have it in stock. Have you tried taking cuttings? Most tropical plants root readily.

I've had some of that in my fish tanks - it's pretty and delicate and never did any harm to my fish. Back then, I was told it was bushy pondweed. Not sure if that is correct, but it might give you a start.

It looks like something we (in Australia) call Java Moss, try Googling that and see if it looks right.
I just did a search and the latin name of it is Taxiphyllum barbieri.
