Why can't I grow Fissiden

My tank is healthy and runs at about 80. What is the trick. I have tied it to different things and it will eventually die. I just would like to grow something flat to cover a item in the tank. Some moss won't even grow well in my tank. Fissisen was popular here for awhile. Did others just give up growing it also?

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.

I think fissidens prefers colder temperatures. 80 degrees might be too high for it to thrive.

80 degree temp shouldn't be an issue. Mine grow fine for me in 78-84* in the summer months. I don't know the exact water parameters but mine grows very well in hard water, EI dosed, high light, and CO2.

moss is a slow grower do u have co2? what type of lights? i keep mine in the low 70s (noheater) and its growing as fast as my flame moss. are there any ferts for them to use kinda dumb ? to ask but gotta ask it. if your tieing it to things is it dieing at the base or the whole thing? base means it needs light whole thing means there is something else that needs looking into imo

Mine will only grow in low light (ie. 1 t8 on a 12" tall tank) with no co2.. Couple weeks later I have more than I know what to do with. I tried it in my highlight co2 injected tank and all it would grow is algea and BBA on it..
