 I  m  thinking  about  getting  some  dwarf  Sags  for  carpeting  in  my  16g  tank.  
 My  tank  details-  
 SIZE-18  g  tank  (holds  16g  water  excluding  substrate.
 Lighting-  2.5  W/Gallon  CFl
 Waterchange-  3.5  per  week.
 Fertz-  doze  Kcl,  DAP,  Epsom  salt  biweekly
 Also  use  Diy  Root  tabs.
 Filter-Powerhead  300  L  per  hour.  Would  soon  change  to  650  l/h.  
 CO2-  Will  start  Diy  soon.  
 My  question-
 1)  How  high  will  it  grow  in  my  light  conditions?  I  do  not  want  it  to  excede  2.5  inch  in  height.
 2)  How  long  will  it  take  to  carpet?  
 The  most  important  question-  3)  does  it  look  good?  Is  it  worth  the  effort?  I  will  have  to  go  through  a  lot  of  pains  to  get  the  plants  and  carpet  it.  Does  the  end  result  look  good.  I  dont  want  to  go  through  all  that  if  in  the  end,  I  will  just  end  up  tearing  up  the  carpet  in  disgust.
 
 Can  also  share  your  experiance  with  this  plant.
 Thanks  .

 Check  out  the  tank  my  signature.  Had  grown  it  in  a  non-co2  setup.  Have  covered  its  growth  progress.  Overall  it  is  a  very  good  low  tech  plant.

 Wow!  Thats  some  really  beautiful  tank  you  have  got  there.  
 Thanks  for  shairing.  I  read  it  from  page  1  to  8  twice.
 It  really  confirmed  my  fear  that  Dwarf  Sag.  does  not  form  dense  carpet  and  grows  a  bit  high  but  gave  the  idea  of  using  it  in  one  of  the  front  corner.  I  think  will  try  to  get  some.  I  saw  it  in  one  LFS  in  a  display  tank  but  the  Lfs  guy  is  not  willing  to  sell  even  a  single  plant.  Will  offer  him  100  bucks  for  one  plant  and  see  what  happens  Chuckle  
 Anyways  thanks  for  reply.

 You  can  find  lots  of  youtube  video's  for  different  carpet  plants.  In  my  experience  if  you  want  a  good  looking  planted  tank  there  is  no  way  to  do  it  cheaply.  Either  go  for  a  low  tech  setup  or  a  high  tech  setup.  The  inbetween  will  not  work  for  novices.
 
 If  you  want  to  limit  growth  by  reducing  light  or  co2,  you  will  need  a  lot  of  experience  or  guidance  or  you  will  end  up  with  fish  soup.

 Thanks  for  the  reply  preeths.
 You  see,  I  am  in  12th.  My  parents  do  not  fund  my  tank  (  cuz  they  think  it  distracts  me  from  my  studies  and  they  are  right).  I  have  to  get  everything  from  whatever  money  I  save,  most  of  which  I  spend  on  my  garden  and  books.  After  this,  whatever  meager  amount  is  left,  I  spend  on  my  aquarium.  
 Moreover,  getting  aquatic  plants  in  jaipur  is  really  difficult.  Only  two  Lfs  keep  aquatic  plants  and  only  one  of  them  sells  A.plants.  I  think  it  charges  very  high  amount  of  money  (  50  rs  for  a  single  DHG  plant,  50  for  a  cm  long  stem  of  Hydrocotyl  Tripartita,  100  for  1  crypt,  350  for  very  small  anubia  nana  and  450  for  a  rhizom  of  java  fern  with  5  leaves).  
 So  I  cannot  achieve  a  good  looking  planted  tank.  I  m  just  sequeezing  the  maximum  utilisation  of  whatever  is  availble  to  me.  
 I  will  however  try  set  up  a  good  looking  planted  tank  after  I  complete  my  12th,  with  some  store  bought  substrate,  Led  lights,  pressurised  CO2  and  fertz  available  in  the  market.  Till  then,  Ill  have  to  make  do  from  whats  available  to  me.  
 By  the  way,  I  wasnt  planning  to  limit  plant  growth  by  reducing  lighting.  Here  is  my  tank-https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=5CHyG0k2GYs  not  very  beautiful  but  I  still  love  it.

 Use  easy  to  grow  plants.  And  try  the  walstad  method.  You  have  a  nice  tank.  But  unless  you  use  consistant  amounts  co2  you  will  face  algae.
