hey- i'm trying to find the right plant for my ten gallon fry tank. What i'm looking for is somthing to carpet the entire bottom providing cover for the fry. Being that its a ten gallon i'm looking for a species that is under 5". Also being that i'm a somewhat new to plants i want somthing that will grow fast and be good for a nooby like me.

Also, i'd like somthing taller (around 10" or so) to go in the corner of my tank that would also be easy, fast growing and provide plenty of cover for my fry. Thx for any ideas!:)

I would suggest you look at dwarf sags to carpet the bottom and Rotala indica to go in the corner. Both species don't require a lot of light or fertilization to grow (although they will do better with more of both).

Moss is offen kept in fry tanks, just sort of floating around. The old, original Java moss does well and is hard to kill. Also a quick growing plant like Najas or Vallisneria works well, Also water sprite (Ceratopteris), or Ceratophyllum.
