    Good Moss to Cover Bottom of 12 g ?

    What would be a good moss to cover the bottom of a 12 gallon, low-mid light tank? Something with a nice grassy look ...

    It does. Mine always broke up from the fish though so it ended up floating at the top of the tank.

    I would do a nice java moss or something similar.

    lilaeopsis spp.

    Echinodorus spp.

    Dwarf Hairgrass (Eleocharis sp.)

    riccia only works on stones and is quite slow.

    riccia would be the best choice for what you want to accomplish.

    I've found that java moss actually grows pretty quickly in my tanks even though it's supposedly a slow growing plant.
