Could I grow Dwarf Baby Tears?

I have a ten gallon with gravel and two 13 watt 6500k bulbs.

They're a little pricey so I don't want to get them if they'll probably die.

Probably not, most carpeting plants are high demanding and need CO2 and T5 lighting.

So I probably wouldn't risk getting it.

Is dwarf baby tears Hemianthus callitrichoides? This is a pretty demanding plant and if you want it to look good and carpet you generally need to have decent lighting, a nutrient rich substrate and either use CO2 or dose a liquid equivalent.
