Yes,u can do that! Tie java moss to tiles,rocks,driftwood,etc. In fact,they
work better coz they have root systems that would "cling on" after a while
and prevent itself from floating.
Riccia,however,will float after some months as it doesn't have a root system.
However,there's talk about Riccia Rhenana that seems quite elusive here in

If u're talking about water temperature being so high,fyi,Riccia would
tolerate this sort of temperature and NOT java moss,which goes with
temperatures 28C or lower. U'd need some form of chiller to cool your tank
