If in 'carpet' the moss should be gently washed to remove any remaining soil before being added to the aquarium. When moss has brown threads, it is not dead, it is just older growth that has been covered by new growth and has not received much light so does not contain chlorophyll, which gives it its green colouration. Once any brown threads are exposed to light, it will then begin to grow new strands and produce chlorophyll returning to its green colour after a few weeks.
