peacock moss, any moss will work really, so long as you have a good bit submerged. The moss pulls water up and keeps the area wet so the moss higher up retains moisture and doesn't dry out.

tank is 11 weeks old.

currently have s. reopens in the foreground but they dont seem to be growing that well. thinking about taking them out but not sure what else to put there.

prefer something that will grow enough cover to hide fry

any suggestions?

Dwarf Sag and Lilaeopsis mauritiana can be good foreground choices in low tech tanks if you want a "grassy" look.
