Looking for some plant species.
Okay well as several of you know I recently turned my 10 gallon, low tech, apisto tank into a planted tank. It currently only has water sprite and cryptocoryne wendtiis growing in it. I had Red Root Floaters and Amazonion Frogbit but both plants failed. From what I can gather from sources online their was something wrong with the lighting, as I dosed ferts as needed and they still melted and died off. Well my question is do you guys know any other low tech plants I could add? The tank has a T5 15 watt light, gravel substrate, NO CO2 and I dose Flourish weekly.. The only plants I really know of that would do well are anubias, java fern, and java moss. I might add some anubias but I definitely DON'T want to add java fern or java moss(I think both are hideous). Does anyone know of any other crypt species or anything that would do well in my tank?? I'm looking for maybe a couple background plants but mostly mid-ground and foreground plants.

Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.
A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

There are some low light plants and the requirements to keep them.
