    I have used a product called Hiawatha moss in my tank with no problems. I fooud it at the craft store, and it is all natural, no dyes.

    any moss that is free of dyes and chemicals--I use walmart moss its called naturals moss--ESU sells moss as does T-Rex and a few others--those are the safest as you know they are specifically for reptiles

    I use reptimoss, otherwise known as spagnum moss. I have it in shower caddies purchased from Target. The spagnum moss pits I spray with salt water because sometimes insects are included. This increases my humidity plus my crabs love to eat the moss. It does no harm and provides them with necessary sea salt. Hope this helps.
