pandamonium I have grown pygmy and dwarf swords. If you are looking for grassy, go with pygmy (E. tenellus). If you want some diversity in your carpet, add some dwarf (E. parviflorus). The darker green of tenellus and lighter green of parviflorus works well together.

somewhatshocked Marsilea minuta is a tiny plant regardless of how it's grown.

ChadRamsey will marsilea plants remain low to the ground in a lower tech foreground? or will it tend to grow taller like other plants in low tech?

Oh hey it's my question. Hahahaha.
Nice I got some MM lying around, may also try pygmy chain swords.

Hydrocotyle Verticillata in a Tank Without CO2

I'm a plant seller and a customer sent me this PM. Would you please help me find the answers to his questions?

He said -

"I'm planning on adding some flora to my 3 gal long and was wondering if these plants (Hydrocotyle verticillata) would be fine growing in FSS with no CO2?

Also do you have any plants that also do well in low light that can be foreground plants? (What foreground plants would do well in low light no CO2 tank.) Thanks!"
