    In your opinion, is valisneria, pygmy chain sword and dwarf hair grass will look good together in a small aquarium? Or should I just stick to one? No other plants just the three. Thank you.

    How small is the "Small Aquarium"
    Vallisneria there are many varieties/sizes which one are you referring to?
    Pygmy chain sword is an easy plant to grow providing it has the correct conditions it makes an excellent fast growing carpeting plant.
    Dwarf hair grass another good carpeting plant.

    My question why would want two grassy carpeting plants in a small aquarium

    One good grassy plant can look great as a one plant only in a small tank.

    I will try to do dutch. It will be a kind of experiment though. This is a tiny tank and we will see if it will work or not. I will create a new thread regarding the status and the progress. Right now, I am planning the layout of plants in paper. Will be getting the materials this weekend. :)

    Here are a few examples is this what you were thinking about?
    I would plan every detail first long before I even think about buying materials. No harm in looking around to see what you can buy.

    That's a beautiful tank Keith. I am thinking of something that has no hardscape but heavily planted one.

    Something like this: http://www.aquascapingworld.com/gallery/images/1/1_Fluo01.jpg

    No CO2 as well, but will be trying out ADA soil.

    I am not also going to put any filter, though I will put an airstone for aeration (especially during the night).

    Will be going to several LFS to know which plants are available.

    I am not thinking of faunas to put right now ( might be 1-2 small fish or shrimps ). Main priority is the layout and the plants.

    :D:D:D

    Thank you Keith. That is the same e-book that I have.

    About the link, that is so informative. I will try to look for aquatic compost here.
