Just plant it in little groups, or space it out. Marselia grows fairly slowly, unless there is more light. Then its slow like a freight train, and once underspeed, it cruises with enough light. I've only grown its bigger brother, M. crenata, but it will do fine in middling light. It might get a little leggy if the light is too low, but it will do OK in low light. The softer the water the better. Overall, Marselia is an easy, undemanding plant. Root tabs might help you. You can see a pic of it in my sig picture. I recently ripped it out when I put some aqua soil in. Now I'm starting some HC.
