If it's a small nano 1-5 gallon, then Flourish Excel is good for co2 or you can use DIY Co2. DIY or pressurized co2 for 10-30 gallons. Pressurized only for 30+ gallons. DIY CO2 is made with yeast recipes. A hagen nutrafin ladder from drsfostersmith.com is great at diffusing the co2.
Water Column Ferts: Seachem Line of flourish is good. But if you want to go cheap, go with gregwatson.com. Purchase 1lb of macro elements N,P, and K and trace elements of plantex csm+b.
If you need more specifics, mention your tank specs and things you needed clarified.
My Java moss actually died on me. I thought it was an "easy" plant but I think my Siamese Algae Eaters ate it up - seen them nibbling at it many times... I have a gd supply of CO2 and regularly add my ferts too...
