Are their any Mosses that are considered "Fast Growing" I have quite a lot of rock work in my 55g and i would like to have a moss that will cover it in a couple months.Also Are all mosses considered a Low Light plant? And can they do without Ferts and CO2 if their is a Heavy fish load in the tank?

One of my bulbs on my T5 unit burnt out so im at just a fuzz under 1 WPG in the tank.As of now no fert Dosing and No CO2. But the tank does have a Heavy Bio load, as i just had an Explosion of Molly and Guppy Fry.I have im guessing around 50 or so fry in the tank Plus the adults and other Fish, so waste is abundant.

Taiwan moss is pretty fast.

Yes, they are low light plants. Yes, they will live without ferts & CO2.
So
Christmas moss and Taiwan moss any others you can think of?

I have some weeping moss that grows pretty fast also.

While they do ok in low light, you are also asking for pretty fast growth. While some moss grows pretty fast I'm not sure you will get what you are looking for with under 1 wpg.
