    Hey there everyone. I have some free floating java moss in a couple of my tanks and I've always just sort of let it sit. Are there any tips you might have about making it grow fastest? I've heard I should spread it out to maximize the growth area but anything besides that would be great!

    trim it often. it'll encourage new growth and make it fuller. you don't need to discard the trimmings either, just leave them in there and they'll grow too

    Sounds good. And would cherry or ghost shrimp be purely beneficial even if I don't have an algae problem? Or would they disturb the moss by crawling around in it?

    Co2 injection will greatly boost moss growth, drastically!
