It just grows, taking over more and more of the tank. You have to cut it back. You can place things on top of it to make a carpet of sorts. Its very easy to manage, and very difficult to kill. Even out of the water, dried out, as long as it's still green it should come back to life - that's what I've been told at least. I have more than enough so I've never tried to revive any....

Java moss is like an std. Once its in the tank it is always gonna be in the tank! I also have heard stories of decor and driftwood having java moss on them outside of a tank and dry and coming back in the next tank the decor or wood is put into

Well now I feel bad. Maybe it wasn't really dead, but my java moss looked very unhappy and brown so I got rid of it. My anubais nana, however, has doubled in size since I got it in December. Also, I've found anacharis to be an extremely versatile plant. I've had it in tanks that only get some natural sunlight and it still grows like weeds. It also does well in my tanks that have plant lights.

Anubias hands down. Kept one in dark for a couple of weeks and it still survived. Gots plenty of insurance that's for sure

I picked her up a banana after I was disappointed in petcos lack of selection, I found one in the back. Mine is doing well enough that it's out competing my floating plants now, so I can give her cuttings if it dies.
