 Am  already  staring  to  like  Glosso   Very Happy  
 
 Think  I'll  order  a  small  batch  of  the  below  plants  and  try  as  well  before  I  decide  to  stick  with  one  of  them...
 1.  Marsilea  Hirsuta
 2.  Elatine  Triandra
 
 Of  the  below  pairs  of  similar  looking  plants,  which  ones  would  you  suggest?
 
 1.  E.  Tennelus  vs.  Sagittaria  Sp.  (Dwarf)
 2.  Eleo  Parvula  vs.  Lilaeopsis  Brasiliensis

 Hi  Vaidu,
 
 HC,  Lilaeopsis  Brasiliensis  &  Eleo  Parvula  -  All  I  have  done  as  a  carpet  plant.  They  need  cool  
 temp.  as  well  good  light  and  co2.
 
 HC  is  my  all  time  favourite  plant.  
 
 Lilaeopsis  Brasiliensis  -  lot  of  people  told  me  don't  go  for  this  one  bcz  they  are  very  slow  growing.  
 
 But  2  times  I  done  and  within  2  month  they  spread  whole  tank.  
 
 Parvula  also  a  very  nice  plant  and  grow  fast.
 
 All  these  3  plants  like  as  cool  as  possible  and  Co2  (min  3-4  bps)
 
 
 About  ADA  -  my  suggestion  is  if  possible  don't  mix  any  other  substrate.  Use  ADA  only.  It's  better.
 
 Please  have  a  look  on  Internet  how  Mr,  Amano  or  Mr.  Oliver  Knott  set  up  tanks  with  rocks.  No  need
 of  thermocol  etc.
 
 Just  from  my  small  personal  experience.

 Thanks  Abhis,  taken  note...
 Think  I'll  pass  on  the  HC  for  now.  Will  watch  how  the  emersed  HC  is  doing  for  the  next  few  weeks  and  decide.
 
 @Nidhi,
 Will  go  for  E.  Tennelus  and  Eleo  Parvula  then...  Have  read  elsewhere  that  E.  Tennelus  is  better/fatser  than  Sagittaria  Sp.
 Will  also  get  Elatine  Triandra  as  I  liked  how  it  looks.
 
 About  Marsilea  Hirsuta,  is  it  different  from  Marsilea  Minuta?
 Images  on  google  look  similar.
 
 Have  read  that  Marsilea  is  pretty  easy  to  grow  too...  Dunno  which  one  though...

 Simple  Idea  selecting  a  plant  is  their  rates..
 the  costlier  it  is  the  more  difficult  to  grow  or  they  are  very  slow  growers.
 The  cheaper  plants  are  more  suitable  for  you..  so  choose  some  fore  ground  plants  already  told  in  this  post..
 then  lookout  for  some  stem  plants  and  rooted  plants..

 After  a  loooot  of  reading  online,  I've  come  to  the  conclusion  that  for  each  type  of  carpet  plant,  there  is  at  least  one  person  online,  who  has  successfully  grown  it  in  low  tech  setup  with  minimal  maintenance...  Very Happy

 Vaidu..  you  are  right,
 All  the  plants  can  be  grown  successfully  in  an  a  low  tech  tank..
 only  thing  is  their  growth  rate  will  be  reduced  and  you  will  always  be  at  war  with  algae..
 you  will  have  better  success  rates  with  some  plants  with  High  tech  setup..

 presence  of  algae  indicates  that  there  is  no  balance  in  the  system..
 either  excess  /  deficiency  of  any  one  of  Light,  nutrients  or  co2  will  lead  to  uncontrollable  algae.
 under  the  above  situation  the  plants  will  not  be  at  their  peak  to  consume  the  available  resources..
 Algae  are  like  scavengers,  they  will  thrive  where  plants  suffer..
