One of the first and most important things to remember is that both riccia, and java cannot be completely dried out. They need to remain wet at all times. Also, riccia requires a nice amount of light to grow nicely, and thats about it!

edit:eek:nce java and riccia become established, they will pretty much grow anywhere and everywhere in your tank, as long as they stay wet.

^What he said, also when you are adding flies to the tank, try to keep the supplement powder from falling on the moss, it will kill it over time.

Java is the easiest. There's a java tribute thread you may like seeing for ideas if you search around for it. I've got java growing on just about all of the wood in my tank and it's migrated up to my cocohut.

However, keep in mind that it looks like crap when you first put it in... but it comes around :)
