Luckily when I found my 2.5 it had its glass lid and dividers still in there. I want to go with a t8 also, but upon searching I can't find one.
My next option would be led.
I have flame moss in a low tech tank with good light but it's not high light. well it might be more then most of you guys have because I did set this tank up for plants. I love this moss. I have a few other kinds of moss too.
I have had this moss for a long time and I have to trim it back A lot and retie it every 4 months. Mine goes like a weed without CO2. I use to have it with CO2 and I did not see a difference in growth. The tank is on the cooler side with good water flow. 75F is the hottest my tank gets. I do add ferts to my water to feed my plants too.
In fact I am about to cut this moss back in a few days.
Most moss likes cooler temps and good water movement making it not the best for a betta tank. I do have flame moss in a zip lock bag with water sitting in a window and its growing well in the bag you just need to flip the bag every day or so. I also have snails in the bag to give off ammonia and that helps feed the plant.
