| | Re: Low light plants for beginner: 36 gallon
well good luck on your venture but the only thing i have to say is i have used vals in my tanks for years now. And your right there higher light plants but i have found many times that the vals will grow under that small amount of light, but they will be very weak and not as green as they should be. now how high is your tank? because if it's anything like my 29gal high (and mine is 18"+ tall) then that amount of light will just not grow them that well. i hope I'm wrong on this one because vals are some of my fav. plants (and they reproduce like rabbits, ha) and i hope they grow great for you!
