What are some good mosses that will be bright and wrap around my dead wood and grow relatively fast.
Will Java and christmas moss work?

In my experience Java moss is a nightmare- it seeds the whole tank, looks unkempt and catches every kind of detritis. My fave for a lush but neater look is Fissidens fontanus. Lots of people say it only grows well with cooler water and high flow, but it grows well for me in my betta tank- a ten gallon kept at 79 degrees Fahrenheit with sponge filtration. You will still need to clean it at leadt weekly, though.
