    Java Moss

    I wanted some live plants in my tank so i've decided to put java moss in my tank and I need to know how to attach it to my sand substrate. Also do you guys recommend any other types of aquatic plants, I have bogwood in my tank so I could attach java fern to it.

    Java Moss, Decorative Or Uncontrollable?

    So, what's the general opinion guys?   Keen to add some to the driftwood in this tank, along with an Aunbias nana, but heard it can be literally impossible to remove from an aquarium once added... advice please!     Also, could anyone ID that plant I have in the background? Cheers, Alex.
