low light forground plant?

I have a 10 gallon tank with 2 10 watt bulbs in it. No CO2 or anything, and i dont use any fert, or plan on it. Ive seen some plants that like sprawl out and make new little daughter plants (if thats what they are called) all over your substarte. That would be prime! My brother got one from petco like this but it had no name so i have no idea what it is, but i like it here is a picture:

I dont care if i get this exact one, but i would like something sorta like it that will spourt around you know? like u see on the left hand side the baby ones

Echinodorus tenellus or Dwarf sagittaria, and I think it's the first. Both will carpet just fine in low light.
