Moss ID, please?

I have some moss that I would like to ID. When I got it I thought it's java moss but the owner said it's not. It does look different from my java moss that I have but I've heard that moss can look different in different conditions and both of mine (these and java) grow in different conditions. So, if you know what I have could you, please, tell its name?

Bumping up because I have more questions.

 

First, same moss in the original post but now it grew up some and I have it in different tanks, so different lightning.

I am no moss expert but these pics look like my java moss.

This one I bought as Christmas but I'm not sure it is. In my another tank it grows on a wall and has a triangle shape. I can't take a picture right now because I trimmed it.

This one looks flame to me. Again im definitely not a moss expert.

Thank you!

 

I was thinking it's java too. But I got it from Forest Aquarium in SF (it was a very tiny piese given to me with a shrimp purchase) and asked them if it's java. They said no. But it looks different form java I have in a different tank but that tank has almost no light.

You got it from SF...they claiming its a type of java, I may or may not have this same moss as vietnam moss. I'm trying to get the id myself. It c ould be taxiphyllum barbieri (subspecies) whatever maybe hold on to it, may be precious.

 

Saw you post this up on SCAPE mayber, I do not remember where I read this at, but did you ever get a second opinion?
