I'm even killing my java moss - surely I'm the only one able to do that!
everywhere I read it always says something along the lines of "Oh Java moss, that grows like a weed, you can grow it in pretty much most temperatures, most lighting, people even grow it in caves.
Well I can't. I've got mine on some drift wood, pretty much centeral in my tank, at about 78 degrees, under light for about 10 hours (2 x 18w bulbs) in my 23 gallon tank.
Here: I've taken a few piccies this morning so you can see exactly what it's like.
This is a relative close-up of one of my pieces of driftwood, here you can see how scraggly it is (I know it's got some hair alge) but from this picture you can clearly see that it's dying.
Most of my other plants are doing ok, sprouting new shoots and are generally surviving:
one of them (can't remember the name, got too much on my mind at the moment) stared in a far corner and has shot runners off all over the place is is starting to fill the tank
This is a piece of my driftwood from more of a distance so you get the full idea of what's going on.
Here are some of my 'tank stats' off the top of my head
Dimentions: 30 x 15 x 12 inch (=23 gallon?)
Lights: 2 x 18w growlux tubes on for about 8~10 hours a day
Temperature: 78 degrees
I've just started again DIY Co2 with a nutrifin ladder thingie
Fish stock: 3 neons, 'some' male guppies (4ish), 'some' female guppies (6ish)
Please help me. Not necessiraly with my moss, but my plants in general ain't that great.
Thanks for any time that you are prepared to give me.
