9.6 gallon - Iwagumi style nano

This is a 60cmX20cmX30cm Starfire tank with curved corners at the front.

It's my stab at a high tech "true" Iwagumi/Amano/nature styled tank.

It will be filtered by an Eheim 2213, lighted by twin 18w T5HO, and the substrate is Netlea Lambo. The co2 will come through a Milwaukee regulator fitted onto a paintball setup (currently looking for a 2.5 lbs cylinder)

I'm still deciding on the hardscape (getting advice on what to choose on another thread).

I haven't quite decided on the plants. I'd like a carpet of some sort, and I want to keep it to just a few types.

What is an "easy" carpet to look after, in your experiences?

Here are a few pics of the better trial layouts...
