I've been looking around at some neat photos with awesome tiny grond cover plants which I really want for breeding...

Any suggestions?

I'm also curious which ones will create a problem for scavengers like corys, although if it's thick enough I can add my Cherry Red Shrimp. Same question for any manual cleaning.

Lowlight your options are pretty small, Rich. E. tennelus would work, but its a grassy plant, or Java Moss, and that's pretty much it.

What does the "E" stand for so I google the correct plant.

Keeping in mind also this tank is only a foot high, so the light doesn't stretch to reach the bottom. I also want to find a replacement for my bulb with a compact higher watt light source.

Echinodorus. E. tennelus is the dwarf chain sword plant.
