? about my Java Moss
My Java looks awesome. Growing like crazy and nice and dark green. It's been in my 55 gallon with 130 watts and I'd like to put it in my Firemouth tank but I only have my 2- 18 watt hood lights on that tank. Will this not be enough light for it? I don't want it to die.
I was hoping to have all moss covered rocks in my Firemouth tank.

it will be enough, when i had a 55g planted i had 2x15w fluorescents and mine grew like a weed

I read it grows faster with more light but doesn't get as green. Mine is lovely but I will move it now if you say it will work.

lol, from my experience it will grow in any light, i had it grow in a 2g with no light.

Hmm, cichlids + plants = LUNCH. Even if they don't eat it, they'll most likely rearrange it to death.

It is worth it to give it a try. Even if they eat it, you will have extras. I can't imagine moss being tasteful though.
