Java moss wall help?

1900 7
My java moss isn't good for a moss wall, I have flame moss in the same tank an it grows fine with no ferts and one plant light bulb a T8 on a 5.5 gal. DIY CO2 mix.

My other tank has 2 T12 bulbs one is 20w the other is a plant bulb, I think is also 20w, ferts , root tabs, also DIY CO2 I have Anubis 2 species, Rotala, pennywort, 1 banana plant, 2 stems of hornwort, 1 Marino ball, java fern, dwarf sahittaria, non groing java moss wall, drift wood with java moss on it growing good. For fish I have 2 neons, 1 orange glow tetra, 2 glowlight tetras, 2 simese algae eaters, 3 Cory cats, 1 long fined pleco, glass/ghost shrimp, 1 yoyo loach, 2 fancytail guppies.

All the java moss I have set up as a moss wall wount grow for some strange reason, the guy I got it from had it floating in his tank could this be the problem? (Moss not floating)

Does aqua moss grow like land moss where you can grind it up with beer and spray it on to a surface and it will grow?
Yes, but you don't need the beer, nor buttermilk for that matter. You just need to apply it in a thin, even layer with consistent moisture and air movement. Those additives just make the moss mold over.

I grow moss wall on my bigger tanks without problems but 5.5gal tank like yours. I tried growing xmas moss wall without success. I think because my small tanks gets always warm where they are located.
