    Did you use plant nutrients?

    All plants will eventually die if they have nothing to eat.

    The best way to keep aquatic plants is to treat them like fishes.

    Feed them, play with them and turn off the light to let them sleep or mate.

    Always keep a happy frame of mind when you're in front of the tank.

    When you're happy the plants are happy because they know you're happy.

    i make my morning swig of kopi with my tank water because it is very nutritious from my EI dosing of N, P and K elements.

    sorry, meant like grass. ok I think I'll go look for moss - the aquariums sell them tied to a mesh but super ex for each piece

    read again, then i know you looking for grass... japanese grass is better.... if want lush look, riccia and mosses are nice, try flame moss...... java moss ok only as they are more untidy if grow much, always trimming....

    using 2 tube t5 24 watts each is good enough, joust that if add fan, the mosses should grow much better.... if grow a lot, try grow extra as wall..... will be damn nice!!

    Based on my experience, moss love cold water. Used to have a fan blowing the water surface of my 2ft tank.
