Good Carpenting Or Foreground Plants With Just Root Tabs?

goldface

I have seachem root tabs. I also have a tank with BDBS as a substrate and am wondering what would be a good low tech carpenting plant that would work with those two elements? I get a pretty decent carpet with monte carlo and amazonia soil with no CO2. Can I expect similar results with root tabs with the sand? What about microswords? Any foreground plants, but does not necessarilly have to be carpeting? I already have a carpet of s. repens, so that's out of the equation.

No, I wouldn't expect the same results with just root tabs and sand.

Microswords, dwarf sag, or small crypts might be good options.

Agree with TexasDomer. Soil decomposition produces CO2, sand does not.

I really like the dwarf sag. Deep rooters? How well do they stay put once rooted in sand substrate?

Wait so using root tabs and sand..... won't even be worth it -.-

Not really deep, but I never had a problem with it being uprooted, especially once it became well established.

It's fine for many of the low tech, low and medium light plants. It's usually not enough for the high tech, high light plants.
