Most mosses are undemanding; you can grow whatever you think will look nice.

I grew java on driftwood in low light and christmas in medium light. Right now trying fissidens in medium light as well so I guess all mosses would work well.

Just pick a moss you like most. My fav is Peacock

For arching dw, I like weeping moss
For tree forms, peacock or java
For rocks I love fissidens

so long as you keep temps below 75, most mosses will do better in the low 70's... only java i think can tolerate 77 where you will see stunting. Other mosses will brown in high temps.
