It doesn't have to be aquatic moss. Terrestrial moss would work just fine (even though technically most moss grow terrestrially naturally, some are just tolerant enough to be grown fully submersed). I think the humidity and the splashing would be enough moisture for something like fissidens if it is given enough time to adapt to dryer conditions.

Or I guess you could spray it every day. *shrug*

Another thing I have seen people with frog terrariums do is create foam backgrounds and cover it with silicone, then press dried sphagnum moss or coco husk all over the wet silicone.
