    The flame moss, what are it's light requirements?

    I've read various requirements of that moss. There doesn't seem to be a true consensus on it's care. As it's a moss, I would start out with the idea that the requirements would be pretty close to Java Moss. Though it does seem to be in the pics, with brightly lit tanks, so maybe a little brighter than average?

    Soon as I get some and get it growing on driftwood, I'll know alot more.
    Far as Artificial, I would think about that one a bit. I like natural, so I use driftwood.

  2. Default Ferts for java moss

    I heard that ferts are worrisome with java moss.
    I just placed a bunch in in my tank. Is there any particular fert that I should use? Or is it any, just dose sparingly? And if so, how spare?
    I'd love to see pics with descriptions of dosing frequency...

    In my high light, high tech tanks, java moss always failed miserably.

    It always seems to do best in my tanks with barely adequate lighting and no ferts/CO2 whatsoever.
    "The Dumpster Tank" 26g flat back hex - Betta albimarginata, corydoras, checker barbs, pork chop rasbora

    "Nano Fish Tank" 20g long - Celestial Pearl Danios, microrasboras, Corydoras habrosus

    "Mbuna Tank" 75g - Ps. saulosi, I. sprengerae, M. pulpican, M. joanjohnsonae

    "Time Out Tank" 29g - dominant male Cynotilapia sp. "hara"

    My tank is solidly in the low light category, 1 wpg appr. I have a fluval CO2 system, but nothing too high output. Heck, the CO2 generator in the kit is like .5 liters and I refill every 2-3 weeks.

    My moss is attached to small pieces of wood around the tank and to rocks. Shrimp are working it constantly keeping it clean. Before I had shrimp, it was a mess. But I know of no moss that is fast growing. Christmas Moss is very pretty.

    I only say "fast growing" in respects to all the images that I have found online.
    Many show java moss spreading quite nicely in a 4 week period.
