Goldfish and Phoenix Moss (Fissidens fontanus)

Anyone have Goldfish and Phoenix Moss (Fissidens fontanus) together? 

If yes, did they get along?  Or was the moss just a goldfish snack?

I had Java Moss. It wasn't a snack, but my larger fish just enjoyed ripping it loose and then it floated all over the tank and got stuck in the filter intake etc. Made a mess. Perhaps Phoenix Moss would be different.

I wonder if they do nibble it, whether it will be able to grow back quick enough? Fissidens usually grows rather slowly without co2 and high light.

I'm thinking about trying it when I setup a new 75 gallon.  I've had goldfish eat java moss, but this tank will be for different fish.  Phoenix moss grows short, so maybe it won't be as appealing as java.  But every fish is different, so I'll have to find out myself.  Also, I'll be using medium light with liquid co2. 

I'm surprised that none of kokos members have tried phoenix moss with goldfish.

But anyway, thanks for the replies you two!

:D
