low tech carpeting plant for 10 gallon?

Recommended Posts

It would take time, but there's a few.  I think it was @Minanora and there was a tank in a bathroom with a low tech carpet that looked pretty dope.  I'll try to find a photo.


That is Hydrocotyle tripartita 'Japan' I believe.

I would also point you toward micro sword.  That plant tends to do well for a lot of people and gives the look you'd want.  If you can't get that to work, try Dwarf Hairgrass, but usually that plant can be a bit finicky, it has been for me.

Lastly, potentially look into monte carlo.

This dwarf sagittaria all started from a single sprig in a low-tech ten-gallon tank, but it's been growing for about fifteen months or so. So yeah, slow growing. The light is a Finnex 24/7 Planted Plus KLC.


I second the dwarf sag. It took about a year to cover everything in my case in my ten gallons, but it's easy and fun to watch.
