Planting Questions

I am setting up a Fluval Flora 7.9g. I have 2 12w PC lights. I want Dwarf Baby Tears or Dwarf hair grass as the carpet plant. What else can I add in there. Just a few more plants needed.

I don't want to run the Co2. Diffuser is way too bulky. I may change the default filter to a smaller one.

Well run the co2 until you get the growth to where you want it. I've always had DHG, and it loves co2. For a tank so small, it restricts options. You could try lobelia cardinalis because it only grows 4-6" high

Obsession is a matter of opinion
