Subject kind of says it all. This is a 5 gallon freshwater shrimp tank. Light level is medium to high. No CO2 flourish and excel ok. PH is 7.5, GH and KH 3-8. TDS is 300

Thanks

You could try monte carlo as a carpet plant. Its slow growinf without CO2 but pretty hardy with a good substrate or root tabs.
I have shrimp too and love this plant. I just trimmed it back a bit in this pic.

Crypt Parva, slow growing but doesn't need a lot of light.

How do you trim it, I assume you just snip the tops off and discard?

For the crypts you trim the base of the leaves, for the monte carlo, yes you do just trim the tops.

Did some google research on Monte Carlo. Apparently originates from New Zealand, Argentina, Asia? - maybe Isle of Skye and Antartica as well?

Does anyone really know where this stuff comes from?

Yep , the astronoughts brought it back from the moon and seeded it in all those locations so we can get it in our aquariums. Cool hey?
