Carpet Plant questions....

I've been thinking about putting in some dwarf baby tears as a carpet plant. I have amazon swords in there, java ferns,Crypt wendtii, hygrophila, Ludwigia Repens, java moss that I keep having to pick out before it eats everything up LOL....everything is growing really well. Actually my hygro just like, lost it's mind and has not only tripled in length but put out new plants that I had to rearrange today. I was wondering if I put down a carpet plant like baby tears, will it choke out the rest of my plants? I'm running two 48inch ultra sun bulbs and a 48 inch flora bulb on a 75 for 7 hours CO2 but I do use Excel a few times a week along with under gravel fertilizer tabs throughout, and a liquid fertilizer twice a week. I have no algae issues at all, other than having to scrape the hard stuff off the walls once a month or so but even then, it's very minimal. I'll take a picture of it later and post it, I just did a water change and some plant moving/trimming so it needs to settle...

Dwarf baby tears is a demanding plant that requires high lighting and co2 injection.
