Since I keep large cichlid that dig and rearrange substrate, I avoid substrate plants and use epiphytes predominantly with a few rooted plants secured in pots. In my 125g, I have trident Java fern and Bolbitis attached to larva rock in the middle and left, and in my 75g, 90% of the plants are Anubias and Buce attached to lace rock. The low growing epiphytes (trident Java fern and mini Bolbitis) are close enough in look to moss without moss invasiveness. Hitchride moss can ruin a structured scape by popping up at wrong places and I got rid of it by heavy dosing of excel, 5x daily for a week.
