Java Moss Care

So I have been looking heavily into Java moss and thinking I really want to get just a little though I have never had plants in a tank before. I have gravel so no dirt in the tank and the tank is a straight shot from the sun coming in through my window if I open the shades. What will I need to keep it alive and healthy and how will I have to manage growth if that is a concern at all?

It is very easy and can attach to many species low needs in everything fish love hiding in it spawning in it.

I don't believe java moss is substrate rooted - so soil won't be a problem. I am getting my hands on some java moss soon! I have read that it does very well as a beginner plant, as it fares well in low tech setups and needs very little other than some light. Your sunlight should be sufficient, but if you notice it's looking a little peaked you might consider getting a light strip.

Oooh nice, it's good that it's a begging plant too. I just think since my tank is fairly big and I am cycling it and want to get shrimp it would be beneficial and a great place to hide for the shrimp.

Oh and would any Aquarium store carry it? Is it common?

Choclate - you're right, I was referring to her comment about having no soil in her tank.

So could I strategically grow it on a lava rock?
