Fluval Chi...

Hey all.. just bought a fluval chi and am curious what sort of moss would grow best in this. I have experience with high light/CO2 tanks but this is about as far away from that as you can get so am sort of clueless. The tank has fairly low lighting (LED lit). I have peacock moss which grows well in a fluval ebi but it has alot more light than this. I do have a java fern in there but it sounds like this may go the way of the dodo due to the low lights. So.. any suggestions?
