I have some java moss and i put it in a piece of driftwood i found. I have excess java moss and i currently have it kind of in a little ball sitting on the gravel and i was wondering if it would grow. Only part of it is on the gravel, while the rest is suspended in the water. Should i sprinkle some of my flourite on it to keep it down or anything. I was just thinking that if i did to make it flat on the substrate than it might die, since it was being somewhat covered and not have any light getting to it.

No need to attach the java moss but it's a good idea to keep it away from the gravel. A free floating java moss eventually settles up on the bottom and attaches to the gravel. The area between the plant and the gravel accumulates a lot of dirt.

It also has a habit of making it's way to filter intakes and can plug them up if you're not on top of it.
