 Rajeev,
 
 Moss  on  driftwood  or  stones    is  probably  the  most  beautiful  thing  in  a  aquarium.  The  great  T.Amano  uses  them  in  plenty  .
 
 Java  moss  should  be  easily  available  .  If  you  cannot    locate  them  contact  Deepak  Brid  at  Bangalore  .He  is  Aquadeep  on  the  forum.  He  will  surely  have  some.  If  you  can  wait  some  time  I  can  spare  some  X  mass  moss    .  It  is  getting  adjusted  and  growing  now.
 
 Only  thing  is,  mosses  require  cold  temperatures  and  will  not  grow  well  above  27-28  C.  Co2  injection  will  make  them  grow  faster.
 
 Regards

 Hi,  Rajeev.
 
 I  will  surely  spare  some  for  you  when  I  can  divide  the  qty  I  have.  Right  now  the  moss  is  growing.
 
 
 Regards

 Hi
 
 Narendra
 
 I  tried  Java  Moss  Many  time,  and  I  was  not  sucessfull,  is  that  because  of
 Chennai  weather.  Apart  from  that  Discus  in  there,  I  use  a  Heater  set  to  28
 same  thing  with  Java  fern  also.  Please  advise.
 
 Regards
 Sundar

 I  have  tied  Java  moss  to  driftwood  and  it  did  turn  brown  on  the  edges  and  becomes  darker  green  .    It  was  soon  engulfed  by  algae.  I  thought  it  was  dead  .
 
 My  research  led  to  me  to  many  sites  and  the  summary  is  as  follows...Please  note  that  my  moss  is  just  stabilising  and  throwing  new  green  tips..  I  still  have  a  long  way  to  go  before  it  covers  the  driftwood  completely.  
 
 Ok.  the  main  reasons  are  ....
 
 1.Temperature  .  Try  not  to  exceed  27  -28c  .  If  you  have  the  moss  on  its  own  pour  cold  refrigereated  water  in  the  tank.  Ii  have  added  a  80  mm  12  VDC  computer  fan  on  the  2x1.x1.5  tank  which  keeps  it  a  steady  27C.  This  also  may  not  be  enough  during  summers.  I  will  have  to  move  the  tank  into  a  AC  room.
 
 2.  Sodium  potassium  imbalance  .  There  should  be  absolutely  no  Salt  in  the  water  .    If  there  is  try  adding  KCL    in  small  qty  to  see  if  the  browning  goes  away.
 
 3.  Co2  injection  and  water  circulation..  Moss  in  nature  comes  from  places  with  high  water  flow  and    frequently  appears  emersed  or  out  of  water.  We  struggle  for  30  ppm  co2  in  water  while  in  air  it  is  close  to  300  ppm....they  will  grow  very  well  in  low  light  <  1  W/gallon    but  with  co2  injection.
 
 4.  Chlorine  /Chloramine  will  kill  moss  quicker  than  plants.  Chloramine  will  also  brown  the  moss  .
 
 Please  also  read  the  folowing  ..  This  is  the    best    site  for  mosses  and  its  members  are  in  Singapore.  Singapore  is  almost  at  the  equator  and  is  as  hot  and  humid  as  Chennai  and  yet  they  have  mastered  mosses....
 See....

 http://www.killies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1076
 http://www.killies.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=997
 
 I  am  also  trying  Xmass  moss    emersed  in  a  15  gallon  tank  with  plastic  film  covering  and  the  results  are  encouraging.
 
 Mosses  are  very  hardy  and  will  survive  in  a  container  with  2  -  3  mmm  water  with  no  light,  co2,  fertilizer  etc.....
 
 I  will  try  to  post  some  pics  soon
