XD that looks like a different clado from marimos. essentially an algae. but it looks really cool :) maybe when you have enough you can flatten it and make a carpet !

Measures almost 36 inches long, 12 inches wide and 19 inches tall - it's almost half the size of the 125.

It's java moss - It's a pain to keep it contained.

Dwarf water lettuce (a lot like the the larger counterpart--same species BTW) likes a lot of air movement over the leaves. They don't often get this in tanks with a lid. I've only had success with the stuff in my pond.

Yah, I just pruned mine back by half this past weekend and its nowhere near that size, it gets really scraggily looking fast.

That is a 125? The moss ball makes it look like a 10 gallon... Other than the fish giving it away.

So a lot of condensation might be enough to keep the "wanting to be dry" leaves too wet and they rot?

Perhaps I should rethink the DWL with my mostly tight fitting lid or relegate it to the jug project.
