Hydrocotyle tripartita

Characteristics:

Max Size: 5"

Care Level: Medium

Nutrient Source: Root Feeder

Composition: Foreground

Parameters

Co2: Low - Medium

Light Level: Low

Tank Mates

Low foreground plants are great for invertebrates and bottom feeders to graze and hide.

Notes

Hydrocotle Japan make great foreground and midground plants.  The clover-like appearance of this plant creates a unique carpet experience.  It’s very hardy, undemanding and can quickly cover your foreground.  High lighting will help this plant grow low and spread.  Insufficient lighting will have the clovers reaching for the sky.  CO2 again will help with density and compactness.

Hemianthus callitrichoides

Characteristics:

Max Size: 2"

Care Level: Hard

Nutrient Source: Root Feeder

Composition: Carpet

Parameters

Co2: Grows best with Co2

Light Level: Medium to High

Tank Mates

Great carpet plants.  Good for shrimp and fish laying eggs.

Notes

Dwarf Baby Tears look very similar to Monte Carlo, but smaller and finer in size. Unfortunately, their finer appearance requires a balanced combination of soil, lighting and CO2. They are very demanding initially, but will be less work once established in your tank.

Utricularia gramminifolia

Characteristics:

Max Size: 3"

Care Level: Advance

Nutrient Source: Root Feeder

Composition: Foreground

Parameters

Co2: Low - High

Light Level: High

Tank Mates

Low foreground plants are great for invertebrates and bottom feeders to graze and hide.

Notes

Utricularia Gramminifolia can be an amazing and bright green carpet in your aquarium, but it must be done right.  They do better in an established tank and perfect conditions can produce white flowers to look like a blooming field.  If not fully stuck in the soil, it can uplift and continue to grow in floating mats. These plants are carnivorous, but won’t chomp on your fishes or shrimp.  It’s mainly a threat to very small crustaceans absorbing its nutrients and protein.

Notes

Rotala Macrandra provides outstanding red colors, but it is very demanding when it comes to nutrients.  The conditions must be perfect which includes a good substrate, iron and trace dosing, high lighting and CO2.  The PH for this plant should not exceed 7.0 as it prefers softer and acidic waters.
