  1. Default java moss not doing to much


    0 Not allowed!
    so i put some java moss on a fake rock and some driftwood about a month ago. the moss on the driftwood is better than the rock and the moss on the rock hasn't changed much in the last month.

    my water parameters are good, but my water is quite hard about 250gdh or so and the alkalinity is stable at about 8.2. could this be the reason for the slow growth?

    Are there any ways to speed it up?

    thanks, not a huge issue but i was just curious.

    Thanks,
    Dustin

    the KH shouldn't be a problem. Java moss will grow in almost any conditions, including mild brackish. How much light is on the tank?

    Maybe lack of nutrients or Co2

    about 1/2" of new growth per month is very good for java

    Java sometimes takes a while to acclimate to the tank, if it has good color it will grow. May need more nutrients.
    In my shrimp tanks with no fertz, about 1/4" per month is all I get, but it is fuller than moss in other tanks that grows a little faster
