Some points I would like to touch upon:

I would use saran wrap to cover the top of the aquarium. You can try to put the saran wrap closer to substrate level and have it stick to the sides, but you may find this will not work that well.

Once your carpet has grown and filled in to your desire, rather than adding water 1" at a time, just flood the aquarium all at once.
