Re: java moss
Java moss grows fine here in Vancouver, where the water is very soft.
I don't think that lack of salt in your tanks is the problem. I
definitely don't add salt to my tanks and, while I am not taking
buckets of java moss out of the one small tank I have it growing in,
it is growing fine.
