    Unhappy Help! Java Moss getting thinner!!

    My java moss had been doing good, it got even better once I added DIY Co2.

    But recently after I upgraded my light to 2 tubes of 1 feet 8w T5. My Java moss started getting thinner and thinner, part of it looks like burned.

    other plants are doing fine especially the HC cuba, they are bubbling like nobody business.

    FYI, it's a 15L nano tank, there are only cherry shrimps living in it at the moment.

    Since the light is your main factor of change. Below are some reference option you can refer to.

    Option 1 - Maybe you can try to tie some jawa moss to the rock or wood submerged them to the bottom surface to see if the issue have improvements. Just to get some ligth distand different.

    Option 2 - Move the lighting fixture towards upwards.

    Question

    For whatever reasons, my moss grows well in my low-tech low-light tanks.... not so well in my high-tech high-light tanks
