8 gallon planted tank help

Hey. I just recently got an 8 gallon cube tank and would like it to be heavily planted at least at the bottom. As of right now the lighting is a 13 w. fluval pc light I believe. I have some flame moss growing on drift wood and some narrow leaf chain sword, but it doesn't look like its doing well, however I have only had it for a little over a week. The tank is cycled with two endlers in it as well. Could anyone recommend me some carpet type plants that will work in my tank.

If your tank is a 12x12x12 cube, you'll need a stronger light + CO2 + ferts to carpet really well. Short of that, all plants will likely grow in your tank but maybe not so fast.

Plants like Marsilea, S. repens, Glosso, et al.
