I grow my mosses with the following light schedule:

4 hours on
4 hours off
4 hours on

I also run co2 and fertilze once a week. Water change 50% weekly. Lots of current in this tank from filter. Cool water around 72 degrees since this is what mosses like. Also have ton of amano shrimp which probably eat algae (if any develops). Half of the tank is filled with floating Salvinia.
