I've found the same moss here in Michigan. I found it very easy to work with and it shapes great, I had mine trimmed round.

If you ever want to share some let me know, I'd like to keep it again.

Otos tend to feed heavily on biofilm, that's why they do great work on "filmy" algae and leave most others alone. As long as your tank is established, biofilm is available and there really is no need...

The only pygmy chain type plant that I know of that turns red is ronalisma rostrata and I believe someone here usually has it available.

If you are looking to get fry from the apistos, your best bets are ember tetras, ruby tetras or marginatus pencils, I've never experienced fry predation from any of the 3.

Do you have a pic of the setup? If she's not ready to spawn, the male can get pushy and if there's not enough sight breaks it can be bad for the female.

Garra feed mainly on inverts in the wild and have shown to do best on an omnivorous diet that is a little protein heavy.
