Bought some Xmas moss online and when it arrived I put it in the tank. Some is attached to a piece of manzanita drift woof. Some is attached to a plastic cichlid stone. Some is attached as a moss wall. The stuff on the manzanita and wall appears to be turning brown. The stuff on the stone is greener. What am I doing wrong?

It might be a temperature issue and perhaps the stone is furthest from your heater. Also mosses do not like Liquid Carbon if you happen to be using that

Maybe. It doesn't appear to be decaying. My tanks temp is right under 80 degrees. I guess I'll just play the waiting game and see what happens after a few months. If it doesn't grow or turn green then I will cut my losses and just order from a different website.
