Is my Java moss dead?

Recommended Posts

Am new to a high tech planted tank and underestimated how much fertilizer the plants needed, so when I came back from vacation many of the leaves were brown and disintegrating. I had a lot of beautiful Java moss growing on a branch, but it's about 99% brown now, and it's been about a week and a half since I started dosing fertilizer again.

My other plants are bouncing back and have new growth, and the Java moss has small spots of green, but on the whole it's almost entirely brown and I'm worried it's not coming back now. Should I remove the branch so it doesn't raise the ammonia levels? 

Thank you for your help!

Awesome, thanks for the responses everyone! So the consensus is that the plant looks awful but it's not completely dead? And it should recover with care and a trim?? 

Yeah, I find it hard to kill.
