you can plant Dwarf Baby Tears, if done correctly it will form a beautiful carpet in your tank

I didn't have good luck with dwarf baby tears and I have moderately high light...

Dwarf sag worked well for me. (low light it grows to 6 inches, but in my higher light tank it's only 2 inches tall.)

I just ordered some, so I can let you know in a couple weeks...

If you have sand, dwarf hairgrass is good...

Pygmy chain sword is a great foreground plant. It looks very nice and it spreads runners like crazy. I had it in my 55g and I now have it in my 120g
