Make sure that the substrate is rich in minerals. If you add live plants you should add ilumination to the aquarium, make sure you have enough light. I´ve kept Marimo (Algae balls) and it´s really easy to keep, just make sure to roll them many times per week, that ensures they stay circular and growing. If they stay under shades too much, they might die faster. Just be cautious of that.
They are an excellent plant for the foreground of the aquarium as they will not grow too large.

Water cabbage is a small foreground plant that naturally occurs in marshes but also grows submerged. It’s currently not very popular in the aquarium hobby, which is a shame! I accidentally bought water cabbage a few years ago and it has been one of my favorite aquarium plants since. The name is derived from the shape it grows in: small rosettes that closely resemble cabbage or lettuce. In addition to natural décor, plants provide vital functions for aquariums as well.
