Does anybody know how floating java moss grows in comparison to java moss that has been anchored? I've heard once it roots itself it spreads like crazy (given the right living conditions). However, right now i am wanting to float my java moss and get it to spread so i can distribute it among my other tanks.

Hey, found some great idea for floating java moss by using corkbark. Check it out
Java Moss - Vesicularia dubyana

Maybe Crisis can get some idea how to make your moss curtain from there ehh?

But I thought Java moss is sinking type?

yea mine always sinks unless there's a current pushing it i think theres gotta be some way to coax it to grow outwards instead of as a clump. Mines clumping as it growing in my 1.5 gallon so... i try to thin it out but taking ti out and pulling it apart a little but now i just have multiple clumps of java moss growing together into one big clump

Yea....they clump up pretty fast. Few days ago I went to collect wild moss, not sure if it's Java moss, they grow well spread on a surface, but after i collect them, they become clumps.

tedious job to spread the out the moss. so just dump it in my breeding tank...hope the fish will bread, lol

haha good luck with that. I need a bit more moss before trying to see if it will spread along a fishing line. If thats successful i think it would open up a lot of possibilities for decorating
