What for a 3.5 gallon QT?

Mr.Pet's
Which plant would be good for my 3.5? I would be happiest with something fast growing so I can separate between my tanks.
I haven't googled them yet, but I just wanted your guys opinion on the ones I should consider.

-Thx

Personally for a QT tank, NOTHING. If you need to medicate then a lot of medications can be harmful to plants.

3g is also very small for a QT tank.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

I'm only putting in a couple fish at a time, the most would be two cories and two tetras. This is the only tank I have and I am not allowed to get anything else. And the plant would improve water quality and would keep the fish healthier. And if I keep other plants in other tank I could add clippings. And i hate bare-bottomed tanks and it stresses the fish.
Would Melafix hurt plants?

put nothing.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
