good carpeting plant?

Its actually more or less for my guppy tank, but maybe others with a planted betta tank would like to know this as well.

My tanks looking a little.. bare, i need to find new plants but i would LOVE something thats going to grown "like a carpet" on the bottom of the tank.

Does anyone know any plants that are avaliable IN AUSTRALIA for this purpose? all the ones i have found are totally not what im looking for!

you probably have to provide some details about your tank. like lighting and substrate and CO2. and define your idea of carpet.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but, is there a carpeting plant that can go in a low-tech aquarium with medium light?
