Hard to kill moss?

Hello everybody,

I'm waiting until after the new year to set up a nano for my betta, so until then I was wanting to put a little moss in his bowl to liven things up a bit. The only light it will be getting is sunlight in the daytime and incandescent light in the evenings (just to give the bowl a little warmth). I will probably find a fluorescent desk lamp later, but until then I will be relying on the light from my window. What would be ideal in this situation?

Also, if you've got anything in mind that you want to get rid of I will gladly pay shipping. Thanks

Bump...

I'm guessing java moss will work fine. If anyone wants to get rid of some send me a pm please!

FWIW, Java moss will work just fine, I had it growing in a tupperware on a window sill with indirect light, and just tap water as a top-off.
some things to keep in mind is that direct sunlight can
1) heat up a nano
2) cause algae.

Thanks for the tips. I'm pretty sure the bowl is too small to be cycled, so I will still be doing 75-100 % water changes every week. Hopefully that will help combat the algae.
