Hemianthus callitrichoides would give you a nice, neat carpet similar to Glosso. While, Marsilea quadrifolia is known as poor man's Glosso due to it's similar structure to Glosso, but it requires less light.

I find it quite ironic that Marsilea quadrifolia is called "poor man's Glosso". I know it is called that because its lighting needs are lower than Glosso, which would better fit the "poor man's" tank description, but when you are talking about buying the plant its safe to say its more expensive and many times harder to find than Glosso. While Marsilea is often recommended I have never seen a picture of it online. I have posted a picture of the small patch growing in my tank. This plant is a very slow spreader.
