    Finally got around to setting up my tiny DOOA Neo Glass Air, i got the 30x12x18CM one. I decided to go for a simple clean look with few species of plants. So far I added some anubias nana to the tank but plan on adding a carpeting plant in the future when i get them. I really want to add some S. Repens. Lots of upgrades in the future like a filter and co2 injection.
    I got everything from here

    S repens will to a size that could ruin any sense of scale (if scale is what you want)

    I would consider using only one Variety of plant and that would be Anubia 'Petite' By tying it to small old soft piece of DW and pressing it into the substrate it will look like a ground cover.

    Your hardscape is very simple and basic which can easily be lost with a mix of plants.

    I think you would find the Anubia can attach it's self a lot easier on old soft DW and possibly grow better.

    The reason for using soft old pieces of DW is the young fine roots can get a good hold onto the DW then start spreading across the surface of the substrate. Just make sure you bury the DW but not the plants roots.
