    Hi Guys, Apologies in advance the pictures beneath inst too clear as its a new tank setup with a sponge filter from my goldfish tank so perhaps that is whats making to water cloudy?

    I am in the process of starting a lowtech planted tank and as such bought a Java fern on a piece of driftwood yesterday, in the pictures attached is that the rhizomes some sort of moss?

    I also got Tetra Plantamin for fertilizing is that any good? My only pass successes in growing aquarium fauna thus far as been with Vallis and algae.

    That is some type of moss, not the fern's roots. For a few plants, low tech, tetra's not bad. It 'll work and help but it's not the best.

    Looks like Java Moss to me. Could be wrong of course.

    Java fern is very undemanding. I have had it grow with just fish in the tank and no fertilization. Goldfish are very messy and will provide ample fertilization.

    I also think that it is java moss on the rhizome.
