Isn't this setup beautiful?

Does anyone know the name of the carpet grass?

It is very nice! The carpet plant is Hemianthus callitrichoides (commonly referred to as HC). It is a wonderful compact plant that does very well under high light with CO2 injection. It will grow in lower light, lower-tech setups, but to get that carpet effect takes some more intense lighting and CO2.
