Moss for nano moss tree?

What would you guys suggest for a moss tree in a nano (just over 2 gallon) tank that will have no CO2 and medium lighting? Something that attaches nicely to wood and doesn't look super messy...Thanks!

Hi, I love willow moss, it attaches well and looks good, I also love flame moss but it only grows Upwards! I couldn't get willow moss to settle for me so ended up with Taiwan moss, and super glue!

30 l juwel vio, fluval 206 external filter, DIY co2, 50w heater.
Black sand, moomin and bog wood, granite rocks
Fauna: 14 cardinal tetras, 5 boesemani corydoras, 3 otocinculus, bee shrimp, 2 assassin snails (some pond snails for the assassins)
Flora: vallisinaria, have moss, flame moss, mini pellia, fissidens fontanus, Pygmy chain sword, dwarf hair grass, golden anubia, bonsai Anubias and some algae (!)

Mini fissidens if you can get it. Regular fissidens should suffice though.

1+ on the fissidens also consider mini pellia(spelling)
Depends on what look your trying to achieve :0)

Thanks everybody! I will be using fissidens for "carpet" so I'd like a contrasting moss for the tree. I love mini pelia but I read that it won't do well in high temps (78+) and this is going to be a betta tank. So does that make weeping moss (vesicularia ferriei) my best bet?
