The lowest light ground cover plant is probably dwarf Clover, Marsilea.
I totally agree that the dwarf clover is definitely a great plant for you. I also think that the Pygmy Chain Sword will definitely be good for you too; however, these kind of bush up rather than make lush carpets...Do check into it, I heard it grows realtively quickly even in conditions without co2 and high light as this plant doesn't like high light anyway.
