The breeders are good if your intent on them all surviving. But your bound to have more bubs later on and regularly so sometimes it's good to let nature take its course and a few should survive each batch java moss doesn't need anything special u just throw it in and let it go no special lighting requirements or ferts needed but you don't need to use it just what I found worked for me

does the Jarva Moss mean that you will have to clean it out more often or just keep to the same as what you are doing?

Clean it out? It won't dirty the tank if that's what you mean? if it grows too much over time for your liking just pull some out

You don't have to do anything with java moss just put it in and leave it in the tank and keep doing what your doing.

I just thought that having live plants in there would make the tank dirty and you would have to keep on top of it more. I think i will have a look at some then

no live plants are benificial for maintaining better water quality and help absorb fish waste and nitrates.

look java moss up and benefits of live plants I have very basic low maintenance low light plants in all my tanks once u go planted thats it i think haha. I dont need to do anything to my plants well i just started to add some seachem liquid ferts once a week but they were doing great without it. I find it helps heaps with keeping the water nice and clean and the fish love it
