Hey guys! I need foreground plant suggestions for my first ever planted tank. It's a 2.5 gallon. I recently stripped the whole thing and replaced the plain gravel with a proper substrate (Flourite) so now I feel like I can successfully tackle a foreground plant.

Here's the specs: There is no CO2, but I use Excel daily. I also have Flourish and Trace and I use those as needed. The light is a 10W Coralife 50/50. So that works out to about 4WPG.

There are petite nano anubias in the front right now but I can never fully hide the roots and they always look messy. I realize I have somewhat of a plant salad going on with many random species so I want something that will unify the look. Would dwarf hairgrass work or would it be too tall? What about marsilea minuta? Christmas moss? Anything else? Have at it! Thanks :)

My apologies for the quality of the pictures ): They were taken at work with my cellphone.
