Ooh red root floaters :D
For my old 2.5 I used a student lamp :) I also have a 12in lighting strip which takes one screw in bulb. Worked pretty well~

I object! lol
it grew beautifully for me when tied to drift wood :) lighting wasn't very high. My water was rock hard~ I find moss tend to do better when it can anchor on to something.
do keep in mind though to acclimate moss from cool to warm water as our betta's water tends to be a little on the warm side. Moss prefers water in the 70s.
Also note that the fluval clip on lights recommended by a previous user, is only suitable for rimless tanks.
