Dwarf Baby Tears (Hemianthus callitrichoides) is one of the smallest aquarium plants in the world, and creeps over the bottom with millimetre-sized, round leaves  Dwarf Baby Tears are an attractive and popular foreground plant for small aquariums. 
It is not a beginner's carpeting plant; it requires good conditions such as enough light, added CO2, water circulation and fertilizer to thrive. If these conditions are hard to create, you may use Micranthemum ‘Monte-Carlo’ as an alternative, as it is less demanding. Trim the carpet regularly, otherwise the lower parts will not get enough light causing root death.
