That's a tough one. I asked myself the same question before actually doing diy co2 and glut.
I'd imagine some mosses and of course algae would work. Sorry, I know thats not the answer your looking for.

I have dwarf sag in my tanks, but its only creating a lawn in my CO2 injected tank. In my others, it survives, but it hasn't spread to create a carpet effect since I planted it a year ago.

Depends on the look you want. I like the open area it creates in my 55g since I don't have anything else growing in the 'field', but in my 10g tanks, I don't want a large open area so it's nice to have as just a single small plant.

What is your lighting, T8's, T5No, T5HO, or ???? Light determines what type plants you could use.

The only plant that will carpet that might work in such low light is Marsilea quadrifolia, commonly called Four Leaf Clover.
