Foreground Plants in picotope

791 3
Hey there,

I'm currently setting up an Evolve2, and I'm wondering what sort of carpeting (or at least foreground) plants would be suitable. On-hand I have DHG and Marsilea minuta. The Marsilea grows fairly well in my Spec V, topping out at around ~1", and the DHG in that tank hasn't really grown but rather has stunted to about 0.5" and simply hasn't spread at all.

Other than whatever carpeting/foreground plant, I will be going with Anubias nana and Anubias nana petite.

I can go with any lighting I need to. I have more than one light for the Evolve if I can jerry-rig them together. Alternatively, I could get a third-party light. Can also shine a normal CFL onto it from a crane-neck lamp.

I'm curious about putting moss into this tank, but my other tank has java moss and it just grows scraggly and terrible.

I am running a 13 watt Daylight CFL in a desk lamp above my TopFin 2.5 gallon cube with pretty good results. I have the bulb about 11" above the substrate. Seachem NPK, Iron, Flourish/Excel dosing.

HC is growing horizontally and glosso is sending out side-shoots above the substrate.

I am also growing anubias nana on driftwood. I got some diatom algae on the leaves initially but I tossed a couple of bubble bee nerites in that took care of it.
