i got some moss growing in a driftwood in a 55 gallon tank and i decide to move the driftwood to another tank.now the thing is that the lighting in the 55 was very low and i didnt notice the color of the moss(it was white-yellow)kind of dead.it has grown a lot.maybe thats the problem??i add iron and pottasium and the lighting is 3.5 wpg almost.you think it will recover or i have to replace it???thanks for any help.

With that much light, you may need a little bit more nutrients of the other stuff, I find when dosing too much traces will turn brown, not a lot as mosses aren't too fussy on them. How is your temperature? As far as changing, they need time to adapt and constant change will kill them off.

I would trim it back a bit to get some of the dead stuff off and it should recover by growing back new growth.

It should get new growth sooner or later, if there is only a strand or two alive it will regenerate. I would not lower the the temp to 72, mine does fine in 76-78 degree range.
