Which of these plants are low light
I am buying t5 lights they are these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/2FT-Double-T5...QQcmdZViewItem i thought with these it would put me in the high light category but it hasn't apparently so need to think now about either 2 of these lights or think about low light options, and hope that some of these are beautiful.
I was wondering what of these plants on my wish list are low light?

your anubias will stay small with low lighting though and it won't have much growth.
