You say carpet plants don't carpet flooded tanks? First time I hear that! Definitely not true. If conditions are right they carpet your tank just as fast as a dry tank. The problem is most carpet plants need quite some light and CO2. Which is easier in a dry tank than a flooded tank. But as long as you add enough CO2 and have enough light (not too much either) it will do fine!

I second that. I've had plenty of tanks with carpet plants completely cover everything. Never used DSM ever!!!
