Default Research on moss - Care to share?

Hi guys and girls,

Welcome me to this forum? Hee
I am a moss lover and I am currently doing some research on emersed and submersed moss... I collect species like Java, Taiwan, Xmas, Erect, Mini and lots more...

I am currently looking into how the water condition affects the moss... Hope to collect a database on how to grow the moss into different shapes and sizes.

I really appreciate if you guys care to share some of your experience in growing them... I received a mail by fellow aquarist stating that Java moss grows poorer in CO2 water... I wonder if that's true..

Please post closed up picture of your moss, the water parameters (pH, kH), temperature, light intensity and nutrients level.

Here's their scientific name, take a look:
Christmas Moss - Vesicularia montagne
Erect Moss - Vesicularia reticulata
Singapore/Mini Moss - Vesicularia dubyana
Java Moss - Taxiphyllum barbieri
Taiwan Moss - Taxiphyllum sp
Peacock Moss - Taxiphyllum sp
Stringy Moss - Leptodictyon riparium
Weeping Moss - Vesicularia ferriei
Willow Moss - Fontinalis antipyretica
