I want to get some flame moss, but I dont want stuff in my tank like big mats, because i do have normal plants dotted all over. Is there a way to make mosses anchor into the gravel itself and stay there?
Second question is, I want some kind of floating thing to provide hiding spaces, but I dont want to choke the light from the plants underneath, or the eventual flame moss. What are some good options that dont grow massive hanging roots and are also bullet proof? I looked at frogbit and it grows huge roots and I dont care for how it looks, and duckweed seems to be the bane of existence everywhere and maybe I wont want that either?
(i will not be using special props like ferts or co2 or fancy light bulbs. its a rubbish 10 gallon kit with LEDs and i cannot invest more money into it)
