I need a plant that looks like grass...


Hi all!!

i'm a newbie, and i would like to get a plant that looks like grass, except it doesn't have long blades, but just tiny round leaves. They are sort of like a carpet for the sand in the tank. I've seen a lot of these but have no idea what are they called.

Any help would be appreciated!!

I personally like Utricularia graminifolia.

Hemianthus micranthemoides if you don't have conditions appropriate for glosso or HC. Here's a picture of a tank I had a few years ago...
