Ideas for 13g?????

Hi,
I got a 13g aqueon kit for Christmas. I already have a 29g heavily planted with a good amount of driftwood and some rocks. The plants I got in it are Scarlet temple, Anubis, java fern, water wisteria, water sprite, Christmas tree moss, baby tears, narrow leaf ludwigia, crypt wentii, rotala indica, amozon sword, melon swords, chain swords, marimo moss ball, ammania gracilis, dwarf lily, glossostigma, apongegeton, dwarf hairgrass, mint Charlie, duckweed, and lemon bacopa. Also in my shell dweller tank a got anubis nana. So I want to do something different with the scape and plants. I was thinking iwagima style. But what would be a good low light carpeting plant? Or is there a different aquascape that would fit the tank better?

A good low light carpeting plant I would say, would have to be dwarf four leaf clover plant (Marsilea Minuta). They are very slow growers, so if you are looking to get a carpet quick, you should get a lot of it.

Seiryu stones are pretty cool if you can afford them.

DHG and dwarf baby tears but you need CO2 for them to carpet properly.

Dwarf sag is a good low light carpeting plant. So is pygmy chain sword.

I decided that I'm not doing to that style. So what are some different aquascaping styles that would be good for this size tank and that would not be a lot of $?

Just google "planted aquarium" and you'll get a lot of inspiration. Iwigumi seems to be the only "style" that is frequently duplicated. There are two others, to my knowledge, Natural and Dutch but don't ask me the difference. For the most part, it's Iwigumi or whatever you think looks best.
