Which tank is that in Lone? I have never gotten it to grow but I can grow Christmas moss, lol. You need to get some of that new moss, Here is the link, I don't know where to find it except for Aquabid once in a while but it would be really cool in your tank. I might try it if I ever get my 20 long and get it running with enough light.
The java moss is just on a piece of driftwood that's shaped like a wishbone, with the 2 legs down at the gravel, and the single leg leaning against the filter intake. There's also a fake cave ornament with java moss on it on the far left side of the tank. That's it. No other ornaments in the tank.
As for the moss, if you remind me in a couple weeks, I should be able to send you some, no charge. I'm forgetful, so you will have to remind me, lol.
It's been in my tank 3+ years. I'm running 65W CF with a 50/50 bulb. It's a 26G bowfront. For filter, it's an Emperor 280 biowheel. I also have an Aquaclear 20 powerhead with Quickfilter for added circulation.
I've had mine in my tank for 3 years, and have not had that problem at all. I've had issues with the ugly algae, but ever since doing my Excel dip, it has not returned, and my java moss looks awsome, and it's over 8 inches deep in areas, and no problems with it coming apart.
My recommendation is to spread it out very thin. If you tie it in clumps, the lower moss will die off and turn brown, causing the upper moss to not be attached and float away. I tied mine on as single strands, putting several single strands in a row and using 1 piece of thread to tie all them on. Do this several times over all parts of the item you want it to attach to. Then let it spread on it's own. Also, once it get's kind of long, trim it real short again, this will help further thickening of the moss. I did this 2 times when it got in excess of 3 inches, I cut it back down to an inch. Then after the 2nd trimming, I have not touched it since other than ripping some off to send to others who wanted some moss.
