I actually fell ill for a while and well a lot of them went down hill, although I've made a lot of notes on how to improve and continue it, it needs some work before it'll be photo friendly again. Hang in tight, it'll prob be a few weeks
Def. do a emersed setup the next time around, no worries, no algae, nothing!
I've grown almost every type of moss emersed and have had no issues immersing them afterwards.
Java/spiky/Xmas/taiwan/weeping/flame - explode when emersed, and they get real green and compact.
Fissidens - not so pretty out of water, but grows without worrying about algae, works great on rocks.
Mini pellia - looks great, grows thick and looks just like coral plates.
I've had about 3 moss dedicated tanks, top recommendation! one - two distinguishable species per tank
I also find co2 and high light grows some awesome moss.
This was my old moss tank, all if not most of the species in there saw emersed life.
