Hi there,

got my foreground nearly sorted and mid ground but looking to do the background i like the following plants but given the tank is 2ft tall unsure

Ludwigia Repens
Rotala macrandra
Telanthera

or something else similar perhaps?

Regards Darren

Darren,
As long as you have a fine, rich substrate, 30 to 35 ppm Co2 and between four and five watts per gallon of full spectrum light, you could keep those not to mention anything else you care to. You'd need a good iron supplement (Florish Iron, for example) if you want to keep the reds in the Rotala and the Alternanthera . Use a half-dose weekly.
