so Ive read somewhere that Java moss will attach itself to anything.
Is this true? also if it is true can I tie it to eggcrate(i believe that what it is called) its a white plastic with small squares

Java moss attaches to anything. I have a few really smooth river stones that it's even attached to. And it grows like a weed. Sure, try tying it to eggcrate; that should work just fine

Ok !!! you guys have really stirred up something now, Mr. never has live plants (Me) after reading all this big To-Do about
Java Moss
ran right out to my local Java Moss headquarters and picked up two big bunches. One for my New little baby Orange Spotted Sunfish, and one for a Semi community tank that was lookin kinda bare with just rocks and driftwood, So now Im Java man, and i have to say, it does look pretty good in there, hope it grows all over. The fish seem to be enjoying it.

Sounds great! Java moss is a really good filler that brightens up any tank. I'm sure it'll grow like crazy for you.

Works for me, looks like a great place for little fish to hang out, smoke, do some rap with their buddies

but right now I have it in my 55gal since it has good lighting and everything i put in there seems to do well. I bought this plant maybe 2 weeks ago and it had no bulbs I guess and it now has 2. its grown fast I leave them floating on top of the water cause im not sure what to do with them?
