I am planing small rescape of my 22 gallon long. Now I want some easy carpet but I have no i dea how mix of microsword (lilaeopsis brasilensis) and cryptocoryne Parva would look together with some "highlight" of darker cryptocoryne lutea hobbit in back near stone?
Anyone tried microsword and parva mix?

Sorry, but I have zero experience with micro swords and crypt parva. However, I am currently growing some Helanthium tenellum in my 5 gallon Walstad tank.

I have microswords. Just a fair warning that it'll be difficult to grow them in low light. They can be grown without CO2 as long as there is a bright enough light source (but not too bright or it will cause algae). Crypt parva and microswords together might result in the microswords eventually overtaking the crypt parva, although this shouldn't be an uncontrollable issue since both grow quite slowly.
