Hi Guys,
I am starting up with aquascaping.
I have a 24" x 12" x 12" tank. (15 gal)
Substrate :River sand. 5mm granules.
One Flouroscent tub 15W. (So approx 1W/g). But i am planning to add another 15W tube to the fixture.

I have set the below things up since the past 2 weeks.
A DIY CO2 system : 1.5L bottle + 2 cups Sugar + 1/2 tbsp Yeast + Baking Soda. (Working fine)
I have 6" by 6" Spiky Moss and an Amazon Sword plant.

I have an aquascape in my mind using Moss and a Carpet plant.

Q)Can you suggest a good and easy to grow carpet plant?
I was looking at Glossostigma, HC Cuba, Marselia Hirsuta.

Q)Also any changes needed in my Light.
Q)And should i be using Fertilizer and if yes, can u suggest which one and how much. I am running on a budget constraint. But i am ready to gather things one by one as days pass by.

Thankyou so much everyone in Advance!!!!

Why is this post censored so much! Haha, must be something with your keyboard. But personally ive had the best luck with Dwarf Hair grass, always out grows my dwarf baby tears. But I havent tried the other ones, but my hair grass goes all over

Lol.. Bold formatting.. Got censored..
About hairgrass, I came across stories where the hairgrass grows upwards rather than carpeting.. Also I need to maintain a low carpet..
And about baby tears, I am a bit to start out with it because across forums there are many who have failed multiple times in growing it..
