View Full Version : Plants for low light

01-12-2008, 06:35 PM
Okay, so I want to plant my 40 gallon long gargoyle-themed tank. Looking for plants that preferably will survive with stock lighting and nothing more than plant tabs.

Do such plants exist? If so, some suggestions would be appreciated!

Anubias species
Java Fern
African Bolbitis Fern
Aponogeton ulvaceus
Cryptocoryne species
Java moss

And if you check the list I made for Squirt for his new tank.. these are all super easy low light plants that only need tab nutrition... 1 -2 watt per gallon is enough for all of these...

Cool folks, thanks a lot. 1-2 watts per gallon would require a light upgrade on most tanks, but that's okay. I can do that.
