Thank you, everyone. I'm excited to start looking for the plants you all named. I like what I have so far, but I really want some 'fillers' for the bottom.

I've seen those seeds. They are like brown seed thingy where a green grass sprouts. It's very abundant in our country. It was usually seen in the emersed form of hairgrass. It takes a whileee when you plant those seeds. Mine takes a month in a 2.5wpg to grow from seed to full fledged hairgrass. But it's very interesting to see it grow. :P

ngrubich My DHG grew super fast when my pressurized CO2 was hooked up (it's empty at the moment and I don't have the time to get it filled). When I planted it in bunches, all of them were sending out runners within a week.

Do they grow and take over a tank quickly? I'm willing to keep it groomed, but I'm really hoping for a fully green tank, even if it tries to take over.

Grass?

I just planted my tank a week ago and all of the plants seem to be thriving at the moment. My question is, I want the entire bottom to be green like grass in a lawn. Is there a way to get seeds to sprinkle to create the 'grass look' or will I have to plant it sprig by sprig? I'm sorry if this has been discussed. I'm new. :P
