Better carpeting plant
I have a 10 gallon tank, 15 watt bulbs X2, and flourite substrate, heavily planted...
anyway, in this tank i have a carpet of microsword,.... for a while i loved the microsword but it grows waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy to slow!!! ive had this plant for 2 years and it hasnt even covered half the tank yet!!!! I love the height of this plant (less than half an inch) and even does alright when shaded by the crypt plants.
plus theres alot of empty patches where for some reason, the microsword sent loonnggg runners that leaves an empty area...
anyway, what plants would you recommend? theres alot of shaded areas in the tank.
what would you think would be an ideal carpet for this tank? Im thinking dwarf baby tears, riccia fluitans (crystalwort) or maybe even glossostigma.
