I'm not sure which one is baby tears and which is Monte Carlo, but the Monte Carlo for sure should be broken up better and really spread just under the substrate. It's a pain to plant it right but other wise it will form mounds that need to be carefully trimmed over and over until it spreads to the surrounding substrate. I broke mine into little 3 and 4 leaf plantlets and then once they were barely poked in i sprinkled some substrate over the tops. You could just see the little bits of green spread all over the area. It grew incredibly and I didn't use C02 at the time. With C02 pumping you really need to get the initial planting right. You're off to a great start though!! I cringe when I hear people say they are going to start low tech and see what happens... like it's not widely known!
And there are a good number of beautiful fish that like hard water. Or given the relatively small tank size you could buy RO in jugs. Do you have any idea what you want to keep??
