    It's not a rule, it's a guideline. Plant, see what happens.

    He doesn't mean plant like the actual plant. He's saying, plant your plants. The anubias and Java moss you talked about in your original post. They should both do ok. Make sure you don't put your anubias in the substrate. Tie it down to a rock or a decoration. They don't like having their roots in the substrate.
    Increasing your biodiversity increases your stability.

    You know what this tank needs? ........................ Crypts.

    Hello compass,thanks for replying but the thing i am worried about that guidline about 1 watt per gallon my tank is 50 watt like i said i need 30 watt more if i want to follow that rule or "guidline" like talldutchie said and i cannot add any more bulbs because it's sticking on the hood of my tank and it has the filter in it so they will work those plants that i listed in really low light tank?

    The plants would be fine I grew dwarf baby tears under incadescent light but my cray that I donrt anymore ate them, and if you want a good looking low light plant that your fish to come will love and it grows fast is hornwort you should be able to buy it at petsmart for like 5 bucks for what will cover a back wall of a 10 gallon but just buy one it will grow in a month to the point where you'll have to cut and replant in another part of your tank oryou could sell some when its big.

    Yes but just remember they always show the best pic sometimes they're darker or lighter or kinda brown so just something to remember.
