From my understanding, MQ stays pretty low.
MN and MQ one has bigger leaves. Forgot which one it was.
Yeah, I am not too sure either.

Agreed. I kinda want to try something different this time.
E. Tennelus is the easiest foreground plant you can use. it doesnt require a lot of light to form a carpet although it will grow kind of tall., and under high light it spreads real fast and will grow low.[/QUOTE]
Yeah, that plant is pretty tall. Not my taste of carpeting.
moss is the easiest plant to care for.
and it can be made into a carpet:
take plastic or stainless steel mesh and cut 2 identical pieces, each that fits the area you want carpeted.
put moss inbetween them, place something to weigh it down in too
staple or tie the mesh together.
place in tank and the moss will grow out through the mesh.
if you have CO2, than you can carpet riccia. riccia is a weed, and can survive floating in every tank. in a CO2 tank it can be tied to rocks and forms a carpet very quickly.
I would like to try Riccia in hi-light tank. I try in low light, and it was gone obviously. haha
Dhg is a little slow, but easy. MM is bomb proof. UG........i just cant grow it for the life of me

Is DHG still pretty slow even with CO2 and highlight?
E. Tennelus is easily breaking a 12" mark in my high light tank and does spread like fire. About 3-4" in a med-light tank, and ~1" in a low-med tank. In the low-med light only rocks grow slower.
The look is too thick for me.
