Carpet Plants

Im starting a 20G planted tank about 2wpg and i can't really find any good carpet plants for low/med light.


If anybody knows of any it would be greatly appreciated.


PS. I was looking at this but i heard it needs good light and c02 of some sort.

What kind of lighting are you using? 2wpg isn't necessarily low light.
