    Bacopa is the only one I'd add to your low light tank of those in those tanks. There are lots of low light plant options though.

    The moss won't rob your Bacopa of nutrients. Mosses are very slow growing.

    They just don't look like what I imagined when I bought it. Not as many leaves...

    also i wanna ask...my lighting is aquazonic 12000K with 39x4 watt for 90 gallon tank...is it low medium or high lighting?

    That light is not good for plants at all. 5000 - 10000 K will grow plants, and 6500 K is considered ideal.

    If you got a new bulb in the correct temp range, you'd probably be low light.

    As far as I'm aware, the temp of the bulb doesn't have anything to do with scatter, but maybe I'm mistaken. That light will not grow plants well, if at all.
