Christmas moss questions

Candace

Would Christmas Moss be able to attach to the cave below? It says it's ceramic but it seems to have texture and small crevice's.

Also I read somewhere that Christmas Moss can lead to algae growth. I haven't had any issues with algae before and I'm wondering if having other plants will keep the algae growth down? I have Amazon Frogbit that I just introduced to the tank yesterday and in a few days I'll have about 9 other plants coming (background types.

Xmas moss shouldn't have a problem attaching to that cave.

It can grow above the cave but not INSIDE it....cus it still needs light to grow

I think you got some bad information. I've never heard of moss, or any plant, causing or contributing to algae.

Moss wouldn't cause algae, but it wouldn't stop algae growth. It is slow growing, so it wouldn't outcomplete algae for nourishment.

just tie with thread or super glue the moss, use gel super glue... algae will grow on anything id the proper conditions are there for it, you have frogbit, eventually the grogbit will consume a lot of the nutrients algae requires.... moss will grow algae on it if the light is too bright, or on too long... the frogbit should shade the moss enough to prevent too much algae growth too.... does any sunlight hit the tank at all, sunlight grows algae very fast.... if you are not injecting c02 like me i use thrive all in one fertilizer AND seachem flourish excel...liquid carbon ...as it also has mild anti-algae benefits.
As always, with plants, you will struggle a bit with algae until you find the proper balance of light fertilizers, amount of plants.
