Terrestrial moss will eventually suffocate and die living submerged. That will cause an ammonia spike that could kill off your pond inhabitants. I really do not recommend finding moss from anywhere and just dunking it in your pond.

If you are insisting on finding moss, make sure you locate it from an underwater source. Don't take it if there isn't much in the area, if the water feature is polluted, or if you don't see new growth on moss that's been submerged for over a month.

Please, think of the inhabitants of your pond before you do something like this.

Thank you very much for informing!

i just wanted to tell you know that my friend has a pond too and he did the same almost 4 months back! but he hasn't faced any problems... so even i planned on doing it!

It's almost been a week since i planted the moss! I don't have any problems so far... In case if i notice any change in the fish behavior or fish death! then ill make changes to the tank as well as inform/update the article...
