Dwarf Hairgrass or Moss for 10gallon?

I was wondering which plant would grow best in my tank's conditions?
I have a T8 Floramax Plant Growth bulb from Aqueon (15W)(18") and dose my water with 1ml of API CO2 Booster.

If you mean java moss. You failed to mention anything. Tank mates ph current. Java moss can grow on just about anything. Dwarf hair grass is harder to care for. A beginner like it sounds like for live plants java moss is easier.

Some people have made carpets out of regular moss. PH-7.6, my current is whatever comes out of my filter, I try to keep the rest of my tank pretty calm. I have one mystery snail, 3 Aftican Dearf Frogs, and one betta fish. I'm getting 6 cherry shrimp in soon. I have 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites, and 20>nitrate

Shrimp love moss. The moss will let them hide too. Does make a carpet but it has to be aquarium moss. Lava rock or driftwood is a good place for moss to grow.

Dwarf hair grass is primarily a carpeting plant... where moss is a plant you tie on something... or make a mat etc... both will grow, usually upwards if you don't have enough light

I'm thinking of just replacing my dying hairgrass with dwarf sagittaria.
