    you want to make a carpet on the gravel with the trimmings?To do that, i guess you would have to stuff a small amound of gravel in the moss to hold it down. chrona probably has a better idea

    Marsilea hirsuta makes a nice, thick carpet plant even in low light. Malaysia is actually where a lot of the aquarium plants we have in the US came from, so it should be rather easy to get them over there at nurseries and stuff :)

    java moss is very undemanding. with no light, it will grow extremely slow, with incandescent, it will grow at a fair speed, with a regular 15 watt fluorescent, which is best, it will grow at a nice pace. with a massive high output light, you will have a swarm of java moss.

    a regular 15w fluorescent will work nicely. i like hagens aqua-glo bulbs, but other brands are fine
