I have liquid ferts and I was wondering if it would promotes growths like Christmas moss, Taiwan, peacock, etc?
How do you keep them so clean and green?
Do they do well in highlight tanks?

Mosses do indeed obtain their nutrients via the water column. Any sort of balanced fert regiment will certainly aid growth, and many commercial liquid fertilizers will help with that. What sort of liquid ferts do you have currently?
How do you keep mosses clean and green? Good water flow, good access to an appropriate amount of light, and adequate fertilization. Pressurized CO2
injection will also help immensely but is not required. Mosses will do very well in high light tanks provided their is an appropriate balance of light, ferts, and CO2
supplementation (otherwise they can turn into algae magnets!).
