Favorite Moss for Manzanita Branch?

I am in the middle of re-scaping a planted 55. I just picked up a Manzanita Branch and would like to tie some moss to the branches. I was leaning towards flame moss, but now I am thinking of Christmas Moss. I am curious what others prefer and why. All thoughts, opinions and advice are welcomed.

Below is the Manzanita branch I am working with. Since I am literally in the middle of re-scaping, try to ignore the floating bunch of Rotala Indica and Dwarf Sag. Also ignore the rocks weighting the branch down.

I will also add that trying to create "depth" in such a narrow tank is a challenge. Other than the obvious of sloping substrate, I am looking for other ways to create the illusion of more depth than the aquarium actually has. Feedback appreciated.

i like the peacock moss type of look. since it just eats up the branches and makes everything green.

I've always been a fan of xmas moss or mini xmass moss. I like that bushy effect it gives.
