I can spare some ricca.

CO2 isnt required but a certain level of expertise is needed to keep this plant tame and beautiful.

You said you had baby tears.. you ought to grow them emerged to carpet and root, then probably do a DIY or injected CO2 regimen if you can afford it.

People have made some nice moss carpets. Why not just go buy some mesh and some cheap moss and go to town with it?

Wanna try some elatine triandra? I did put a couple stems in a tank that has low light and very low co2 and it did grow. I have since taken them out so I dont know how it grows long term, but I can give u some to try. Got some (taiwan or christmas, not sure the id anymore) moss for you if you want since you are so generous on the snails and you speak cantonese, lol. Got bacopa and dwarf sag if you want too suitable for low tech.

You mean hc, the dwarf baby tears? I think u should plant with the rockwool, just cut away the extra rockwool, I think it is a nightmare to try and separate the hc, it is going to float everywhere unless u are doing dsm. Doing it that way for a 20G u are going to need many pots and $$$. Good luck.

If you can buy baby tears , then I suggest you should try Utricularia graminifolia. UG is not difficult for take care in DSM . Baby tears will melt down in DSM
