Plants for a 7 Gallon

Just starting out on a Fluval Flora 7Gal nano. I have some Hornwort in there now as a starter, but finding them too messy and large for the tank.

I"m looking into getting a carpeting the front of the tank with flora - any recommendations?

Also need some tall plants for the back in replacement of the Hornwort.

There are many varieties you can go for such as dwarf hairgrass (Elocharis acicularis), Brazilian Micro Sword (Lilaeopsis brasiliensis),HC (Hemianthus callitrichoides), Glosso (Glossostigma elatinoides), and a few others for carpeting, however your lighting and CO2 will determine whether you can keep some of the species or not. As for a background plant there many varieties you can also go for such as Bacopa (Bacopa Caroliniana) or Rotala rotundifolia (Rotala rotundifolia). There are many other options, but again your lighting and CO2 will determine what you can keep, not to mention whether or not you dose any sort of fertilization.

Anyways, if you're using stock items from the the Flora kit, then I had luck with Dwarf Hairgrass for carpeting, and as a background i had Bacopa.
