'ello all! I am setting up a licorice gourami tank and need some sort of plant that can both handle the extremely soft, acidic conditions of the tank AND provide good cover for the fry. I would love either utricularia gibba OR some kind of moss (preferably java moss). Any quick replies would be much appreciated!

Thank you! Sadly, though, Elodea will almost certainly not survive in the warm (high 70's to low 80's), extremely soft (tds about 16 ppm right now), and highly acidic (below 5!) conditions in the tank...java moss and/or U. gibba will.
