Carpet plants for 30 gallon

I have a few live plants in my tank would like more. Don't use co2. Would like to add carpet plant. Wouldn't like to use co2 either. I do use seachem flousish and excel. Any ideas on what to get with what I'm using?

Not really going to work without higher light, more fertilizer and CO2.

Maybe micranthemum monte carlo, hydrocotyle tripartita, sagittaria subulata, marsilea hirsuta, dwarf chain sword.

Agreed. I found dwarf sag the absolute easiest out of those. Pretty much plant and let it do its thing. Chain sword was also easy but I found hydrocotyle to need a bit more attention and did so much better under high light and co2.

Just be careful if you do use Dwarf Chain Sword and then add CO2: it will take off like a rocket and cover your tank.
