Low grow nano plants

Just wondering what to use in my tank for a carpet plant. want something really low growing and I only plan on a 2-3 species of plants. Tank is an AGA 5.5 16x8 foot print 10" tall. Scape will be mostly rocks coming from chef. and maybe some manzanita if I can find some. Lighting is 26 watt and will be pressurized CO2 with full line of Ferts.

I really want UG but it seems hard to find right now. Had HC in the past aswell but looking for something different. How tall does Glosso get?

I also want some Nana Petite which would probably look good with glosso as the leaves would probably blend and some moss of some kind maybe Mini peilla or fissidens and possibly subwassertang. Anyone have this combination of plants together?

Hope to have my equipment be the end of this week.

I am a fan of Mareselia Minuta. I have it in pretty much the same set up as you are wanting to do. It's still filling in btw.

glosso, m. minuta, riccia fluitans, HC, HM (would take a lot of trimming, but doable), and moss.

marsilea grows SO slowly, but it looks great if you have the patience and lighting to keep it happy.
