On to the question: I recently, 1 month ago,
introduced java moss into my tank and it has since
turned brown in color.  It does not seem to be
growing.  What could be going on, can it be too much
light?  Below are my tank conditions:

29 gal w/90W fluorescent light (12hr photoperiod)
Temp: 78-80F
Fertilized every other day w/ K2SO4 & trace elements
pH: 6.7-7.0
CO2: 15-25 ppm
KH: 4-5 ppm
Fe: 0.1 ppm
Ammonia/nitrite: 0 ppm
NO3: 5-10 ppm
PO4: 0.1 ppm
Plants: Vals-contortionist and spiralus, E. tenellus,
Bacopa carolinia, & Java moss
