It's surprising that such an easy plant seems to be causing so much trouble for a lot of people! I changed the lighting, from 15w to 25w, dosed small amounts of ferts and anchored it to the driftwood. I had it floating before (quite a few months ago) and it wasn't growing at all.
This is M tank back in February, you can see the java moss wasn't thriving very well. The amazon swords survived, but are much smaller now because I had to trim them down quite a bit.
That still looks better than mine looks now. I'm just gonna toss mine out and live vicariously through you and your moss.
Thought I might share some close ups of the shrimps now that they've settled in and brightened up. The round tank really is a pain in the behind, for both cleaning and taking pictures. Does anyone know of a place that ships aquariums to canada for a decent price? I'm looking into replacing the bowl for a 2-3 gallon tank.
