Java Moss Dying

    I find this terribly odd.

    My moss is not really growing well, and I have to say it is dying off.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Ziabis,

    What type of moss? Are you dosing ferts at all? How about Seachem Excel or API CO2 Booster?

    Hi Ziabis,

    I have had trouble growing moss using Excel / CO2 Booster due the glutaraldehyde and I have had difficulties if dosing excessive iron. The iron in your Seachem Flourish Comprehensive is probably fine but I would discontinue the extra iron. Just an FYI that most moss killers and moss control products contain either zinc or ferrous sulfate monohydrate (iron)!

    It's really odd. Because everything I have used in the previous aquarium with the same moss and I grew so much of it, I had over a pound of moss.

    Hi Ziabis,

    It could be something else but if it were me I would discontinue the extra iron and see if you start getting new growth in a week or two. Let us know how it works out!
