To your pant question, Java Moss will thrive on the wood in low light once it is established. I pull this stuff out by the handful maybe every 4 weeks. Java Fern might also do OK.

i asked a lot of people regarding this javamoss, all of them told me that it required very strong lighting and cannot live with a weak lighting..

Nonsense. I have moderate (what many would consider minimal) lighting in my tanks, and this stuff grows very well. A lot of mosses are low/moderate light; one of my local fish stores employs an authorized representative of ADA who was trained by Takashi Amano and he recently propogated four different moss species that all grow fine as carpet plants on the substrate with low light.
