    is this brown "brush" under the centre spine of the moss? if so it is the reproductive "whatever-it-is" of the moss. My moss eventually grew little strands with a tiny green/yellow "fruit" at the end of the strand.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Brown? Eh... if your tank is really new, then its normal. It'll go away once the plants stabilise.
