a good way to get java fern and even java moss to grow well is a piece of drift wood. The plant/moss will attach itself and grow like crazy.

Oh shoot, I wasn't fast enough on this one. A GREAT and cheap alternative is a product called Turface, MVP or Pro-league. 20 bucks for a 50 pound bag, and I have been happy with it so far. One problem--you can't gravel-vac it, it will get sucked up. But everyone else gave you good advice and I'm sure your tank will be great.

I don't know,but the reviews of it are all good,did you read them?
That's what's going in my 55g;I cant afford to put 6-8 bags of Eco Complete or Flourite in it,most places want around $50 for shipping on top of the cost of the substrate.

I can get Eco Complete locally,and am going to put it in a 20g long though.
