Smile I need a plant that looks like grass...

Hi all!!

i'm a newbie, and i would like to get a plant that looks like grass, except it doesn't have long blades, but just tiny round leaves. They are sort of like a carpet for the sand in the tank. I've seen a lot of these but have no idea what are they called.

Any help would be appreciated!!

With Pleasure,
Cornelia Baker

hemianthus callitrichoides, or HC is another carpet plant with tiny round leaves.

Wabi Kusa is just an Aquascape Katamari

I personally like Utricularia graminifolia.

Hemianthus micranthemoides if you don't have conditions appropriate for glosso or HC. Here's a picture of a tank I had a few years ago...
