The more challenging aspects include balancing lighting needs -- i.e. not bleaching the moss, which can't take as much light as some of the other plants -- and letting nature take its' course instead of rushing; I'll upload more photos when I have more than 5 or 10 minutes, but I've already removed a few clumps of moss strategically as I'm learning the growth habit of this species:

It looks best with surprisingly low light levels (300 foot candles) due to a slower, more compact growth pattern...counter-intuitive since I'd assumed it would etiolate in low light, but as it turns out the colour improves and it creeps along surfaces as opposed to getting bushy or 'pillow-y'.

I'm also trying to dial in misting; currently reducing it.

Smaller or even just lower tanks are easier environments to control but I'm zeroing in on the conditions I want in this one.
