Is it possible to use petite nana as groundcover? I read that they grow slow and stay small so I figured it would do good for designing the foreground. On the other hand, since you don't really plant the roots I fear they would be uprooted by pleco, or loach or cory should I choose one of these.

It grows so slow it wouldn't work for groundcover-and it doesnt really spread out like other cover plants. It could definately be uprooted by a pleco or loach-but it would be easy enough to just stick back in the ground where it was.

No water yet. Still planning. Got filter and new lamp and gathering everything right now. Doing a lot of reading about the flora and fauna I would like to keep and finding which ones will all be compatible. Just want to do it the best I can so I can reduce my chance of failure.

anything is possible...if you had enough petite you could use it as a ground cover...especially in a nano tank...attach it to a small rock or wood and you would not have to worry about it being uprooted...
