can these two be planted together or will one kill off the other ? I mean tightly together, fern with moss around the base of it.

I am looking at one of my tanks right now and it would appear that the java moss is becoming unruly being about 7+ inches tall now and the java fern is just towering out from it so I would say it works out in its own way. You can always trim back the moss when it gets massive.

I bet it is going to be pretty rainforest or jungle like if it is anything like my mine. Let me know if you need some moss as I have extra right here.

well go figure... My moss should be here today and my shelf isnt finished yet. Whats the best way to keep it alive without floating it in my tank ? Can I put it into a bowl or something for a few days ?

Think I'd just float it....but you could always put it in a small fish bag with tank water and float it in your tank....dump the water daily and add fresh tank water. Then it's at least getting some nutrients and stays at tank temperature....?
