Pearl grass, dwarf hairgrass, dwarf clover, Glossostigma, these next two can
get a bit tall: Small tennellus chain swords(there's rare type of micro
chain sword, slightly reddish in color- stays short), dwarf sag's, Riccia
stones(lots of work but looks great), moss stones(much less work), Dwarf
lobelia, a number of small crypts:C parva,C. x willisii, oak leaves, smooth
river stones/rock of various types, driftwood covered in Anubias var. nana
or moss etc, Hottonia palustris,
Well that's enough for you I think. Not all of them are carpeting, but this
should give you some ideas. The fall colored oak leaves do look kind of cool
in a tank.
