Strange Question about Java Moss

Hi everyone.

I've got two strange questions about either Java or Willow Moss
(Fontinallis.)  I have a LOT of this stuff, and was wondering if anyone has
ever tried using it in a bog media -- i.e., rather than using Sphagnum moss
for a medium, using one of these two.  Ideally, I'd like to try to plant
pitcher plants in it, but am wondering if it would work.... Anyone ever
tried it?

And, more to the point, when I put it in thick grow-out tanks, the bottom
areas tend to die off a little bit.  Very quickly, it turns stagnant, and
reaks should it be distrubed.  Anyone have any ideas on keeping the bottom
alive and growing, so it won't .. well, turn to H2S.  I'd rather avoid using
an airstone or something, since it will run off CO2, and -- more to the
point -- I'm just using the tanks to grow moss.  I'd rather avoid spending
anything on it! :)
