Looking for fast growing, shrimp friendly carpet plants


I'm going to be in Manhattan on Saturday and I was wondering if anyone has any good carpet plants for sale. Otherwise can someone point me to a store with a good plant selection? Thanks.

Edit: My tank has no CO2 so any CO2 intensive plants would be bad.

Pacific normally has a large plant selection to consider.
This photo was taken by our local hobbyist, patrobe just this afternoon.

Avoid asking the blonde female any plant questions. She's in it for the sales.

Photos aside, pacific has an awseome plant selection. The only thing is that in the long run it might be cheaper to try and buy it off of fellow hobbyists.

sorry. the photo had facebook permissions. we do far more photo swapping there than here.

You are likely going to find pots of glosso. I would say that's an easy one to start with provided you have sufficient light in the tank. Another would be dwarf hairgrass, also commonly sold at many retail outlets.
