Default Java Moss Help

It was probably dead. If I buy the stuff from my
wholesaler, it will do the same thing. So I make sure it's
growing well in my tanks. It grows fast enough in my tanks
to keep up with the demand, but I don't dare buy it from
my wholesaler, otherwise it will go from dead green to
dead brown :-)

Nah, brown when dead, green when alive. Maybe it ran out of food. It'll
do that sometimes.

BTW, I think folks sometimes confuse Java Moss and Java Fern in terms
of rate of growth. It's been my experience that Java Fern is a pretty
slow grower.


Agreed.
