| | New light system - plant help!
I have a 3 foot by 18 inch by 18 inch aquarium, with basic gravel, a couple of rocks and some driftwood. Its been set up for a year now, and i got bored of my plants and decided to increase my light. Initially i ran 60W for 12 hours, but today i added 96W, which i will run for 6 hours of the day on top of my 60W for 12 hours. I use a liquid fertilizer once a week, and my canister filter is an Ehiem 2215.
I have a couple of angel fish, a blue gourami, red phantom tetras, oddessa barbs and a few cellar dwellers.
I couldnt tell you the names of many of the plants currently in my tank, but i know there is a couple of swords, an annubius of some sort and some water sprite. Most of it will come out because i want to add different plants.
I have had a bit of a look on the net at what is available to me and i like the look of Hemianthus Micranthemoides (Pearl Grass), Microsorium Pteropus Windelov, Nympoides Aquatica and Riccia. But the reason i am on here is because i would like you to please suggest some plants that may grow successfully in my set up?
I realise CO2 is required for many plants, and good growth, however i cant install it for a few reasons.
Thanks for your help!
