Plain old java moss (T. barbieri) grows just fine in discus temps (82-84ºF) for example.
i know what you mean by the fissidens, i have it in my tank, alond with java, the fissiden is doing good, just very slow to grow, i have my temp at 76, for my exodons, on the other hand the java grows like crazy, just added 4 golf ball size portions to my centerpiece driftwood not much growth yet, still getting aclamated i suppose, i do dose twice a week, once a month with subtrate firts, no co2 yet, all plants are doing well, i dont want crazy growth, due to the amount of fish i have in there, 9 exos, 1 5inch jag cory, i spiny ell, and 2 needle loaches, just thought i would share,lol
