Fissiden's won't grow

I had three types of fissiden growing in my 46g. The other plants did not grow a lot. I have not really changed anything, but the plants grown fast, can trim weekly. All of my fissiden has died. I have grown it for years but not now. My water is O, O, -+.4 ph 6.
I know I have a low fish load and don't have to change the water but every 10days or so. I don't always vac when I change maybe about ever 3 time. I am using Tom's ferts and generic excel. Why can't I grow Fissiden?

75g, pair of gold rams , ABN, 1 adult 2 young discus, 2oto's, 6ADF's, 3 anglefish. 96w 6700k-light 6hrs raised, No C02, Excel, EI dry macro's and micro's, Eheim 2126, 18w UV, 2 Nano 270 powerhead. wall of bubbles for more O2 for such a deep tank.

On one of the forums, I read that Fissidense is not an aquatic plant.
It will survive for awhile submerged but only thrives emersed.
Good luck

Opps forgot that info, Its 80 the same temp I grew when it did grow for a year or so.

I have seen tanks on here and other places that have grown fissiden at different temps. "Spypet" had great luck with the stuff.

I would try a lower temperature; most mosses do not really like high temperatures. Perhaps you were lucky that it managed to grow in 80 F water for so long?

I have a discus in the tank who needs the higher temp. I guess I will have to go without the fissiden. I have moss growing so that will have to do.
