    Attach to rock or wood with string or elastic band and place into fish tank.

    It doesn't get much simpler than that really.

    how about temperatures?

    Mid 70's is good. Also, I would tie it down good, as java moss likes to spread out.

    Java moss will attach itself to driftwood or rocks. It doesn't have roots so you have to fasten it down with something like string or netting until it attaches itself to the surface you want it to adhere to. Some people will make a moss wall, where they put the moss between 2 pieces of plastic canvas. There are instructions for that elsewhere in this forum.

    PS - Love your profile, but the real info would make it a little easier for people to help :p.

    Mine grows perfectly fine in 80F water as a moss wall, and attached to a piece of driftwood. Between high light, CO2, and EI dosing, it didn't take too long to start spreading across the driftwood. Keep an eye on it for any signs of algae. Since it grows slower algae is more attracted to it, and it is very hard to get rid of algae on moss.

    Yeah, Java moss will grow in many conditions, especially with added ferts, etc. and good lighting. It will grow differently in different conditions.
