Question Java Moss?

I have a 5 gallon tank and just got a bundle of java moss and it's floating and I don't know if it is supposed to do that and what should I do about it if anything.
Oh and I have a heater and a light and a filter.

It could be the plants are creating a ton of oxygen?

I'm about to purchase some java moss myself. I'm curious, do you need a special light for it to grow?

No they are so hardy they can live in slightly brackish and cold water.

Even a regular window will work.
