The mosses don't work too well as carpets directly onto the gravel they need to be attached to bogwood or like in the add some form of mesh, keep it on the mesh and let it grow, but I won't send runners into the gravel and give you a carpet effect like some plants.

It will grow great under T5's, no need for C02, I have it in amongst most of my tanks thriving well, both with and without C02 :)

The moss look better than the carpet but only when you know to fit well as its a tedious task.
