ground cover

I'm looking for something that will quickly cover the bottom of my tank. The faster it'll spread, the better.

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

10 gallon
14 gallon
20 gallon
55 gallon

A simple hobby, that turned into an expensive obsession.

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
