Smallest moss-like plants for low light?

What are the smallest moss-like plants suitable for low light conditions? I love fissidens fontanus but it's too big for accents on dragon rock in a 7.5 g shrimp tank and f. geppi failed to thrive on a previous attempt.

Mini-taiwan? Another fiss species?

Getting back to the hobby and up to speed.

Fissidens fox is similar but slightly smaller. Fissidens nobilis is much smaller and grows straight up instead of curling over. Fissidens splachnobryoides is the smallest that I know of, but I don't like the growth pattern under anything but high light.

The fissidens family has the smallest fronds and growth of any of the mosses I've kept so far.

Thanks for that. So nobilis is sort of like flame fiss?

Also, what do you think of geppi?
