Please help java moss

Epicoz

All my java moss is dead and a lot of my plants are dying. What should I do
I have java moss, Anumbis, and java fern in there and it’s all dying. I don’t give light because of algae and just started using thrive. I have a batch of good moss but it was in my tank about a year ago possibly with ich and I took it out before treatment is it safe?

HI Epicoz. No plants will do well with no light whatsoever. This may be your problem.
 

Corycatz

Probably a lack of light
 

Epicoz

There’s no ich I have another patch in a container that was exposed to ich a year ago
 

CoryBoi

The plants are not growing because you aren’t turning the light on, they need light to photosynthesis and without it they will die

Yes, the lack of light is your issue. Is this an established tank that you added plants to or a new tank that you’re cycling?
 

Epicoz

Established I’ll try adding more light
 

Epicoz

Now one of my fish is stressed I turned off the light but it’s still a bit stressed

In a planted tank, lights should be on for 8-10 hours a day

The best way to avoid algae in a planted tank is to have enough plants, with the lights on, of course, because if the plants are growing strong, there's no nutrients left for the algae. You can also try to add a Nerite snail or some Glass Shrimp (also known as Feeder Shrimp, among other names), they'll eat the algae.
