What is the fastest growing plant that would make a nice fore-ground. All I have now is a backround, but I can still see alot of gravel! This is a 20gallon long tank with a penguin 175 biowheel filter and a DIY Co2 system.
Also any other suggestions on my tanks aquascaping.:bounce: Sorry for the bad color balence!

The color of the tank is more white in real life.

Glosso, Marselia quadrifolia or minuta, Elatine tiandra. Glosso, and elatine tiandra are the fastest growing though. Should be enough light for any of those. I like the marselia's even though they take a bit longer to grow in, but they are worth the wait.

Also, you could use HC, or HM (which is the plant you saw pearling; it is also called "pearl weed") which are both fast growing. Epicfish is selling HC right now on the Swap n' Trade thread here for a good price....you should buy some and see how you like it!

Dwarf Hairgrass grows fairly quick as well. I guess it all depends on what type of effect you want to have in the foreground.
