The regular 48" Finnex Fugeray would work great.

The Ray2 would probably necessitate heavy ferts and CO2.

I've also seen people wrap screens around their lights to reduce PAR. I may do that to combat hair algae issues in my tank.

That moss is looking pretty sweet on the branch! I really like the plant diversity and overall lushness of the tank.

I think pretty much any moss will work in this setup, including fissidens. Most species will also benefit from the cooler water conditions.

If there are a lot of debris attached to the rocks I think boiling them would be your best bet. If not, then a good rinse in hot water would probably suffice.
