It says in the first post of the thread what filter/lighting I have (AC70/HagenGlo 54W single T5-HO). As for substrate, I am using MiracleGro Organic Choice Potting Mix capped with Quikrete All-Purpose sand (love it, but it was dirty as hell).
So I went and bought Java Moss today. I'm kind of irritated, because the lights they use in the store tanks play a bit of trickery since they are kind of dark, and it makes everything look green. Even in the bag it looked green. When I started unraveling the wad of moss to tie to the wood, I noticed a lot was brown. I didn't really bother separating most of the brown from the healthy green, so I'll just let it do its thing in the tank and hopefully it will look nicer over time. I used thin black thread to tie it all along; it's been a while since I attached moss to wood, so hopefully I did it correctly...everything is holding nicely. I'll take a photo next week!
I also didn't get any C. caroliniana because everything seemed pretty overpriced. I paid a bit more for one hunk of moss than I had really planned, but it's all good.
