Yes. Java Moss will attach to wood and rock, and once established (this can sometimes take a few weeks) spread nicely. I'm regularly pulling out chunks. It does better in low to moderate light, and with floating plants for cover. Changing the light siutation in my experience sets it back, but it recovers after a few weeks.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
