Default help with java moss

Do you mean a little ceramic gargoyle decorative piece? Java moss will not
cling to something smooth like that. I once tried to get it to attach to a
sea shell with no success. Driftwood is best, or maybe a really jagged
rock. Mine grows well free-floating and also attached to driftwood. One
tip I can suggest is to attach a very thin layer - not a thick bunch of it.
It won't attach properly unless a really thin piece is allowed to get light
and 'dig-in' to the object.

I few months ago I bought a amount of java moss at my local lfs, I got it

bargin since it was the last one in their tank, it was DARK green and in

shape. I have since then trimmed out all the brown dead material and

around a little gargoyal , I have not seen any new growth from it in a 20
gallon planted tank with 2 watts/gal, CO2 infused, there are no

imballances in
the water so I know its not a problem there. Is there anything I could do

stimulate the growth so as to see a reason to have it?

any help would be welcomed
thanks in advance
