Yeah, dhg takes forever to get started, you may want to check out some micranthenum umbrosum or dwarf baby tears. The Monte Carlo grows quite quickly in my 3 gal nano, and it isn't even CO2 supplemented. As for ferts I recommend and always will recommend the Seachem line especially if price isn't an issue, their dosing guide is easy to follow and use, however, for price dry ferts are generally preferable although if this is a relatively short project you may find yourself with a fairly large amount of leftovers. Also be wary of EI dosing especially on a nano tank as it will probably lead to a green box until your plants are established and can cope with the excess nutrients, although I guess if you stay on top of water changes that won't be too much of an issue either.
