Hello everyone this is my first post and i'm looking for help! Surprise! I'm planning to set up a low tech set up, it's a four foot rena tank with two T8 arcadia bulbs, fresh and original. I'm gonna use tetra substrate topped with gravel. Any suggestions for plants suited for this set up? And where is it best to get them, mail order, ebay or lfs? As you might have guessed i'm new to the planted set up although i've kept fish for about 20 years on and off. Any help or tips would be great!:D

Thanks for the welcome!

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, i have been doing a lot of reading on the afforementioned subject. Just thought i'd get some up to date opinions from some people in the know! My tank is a Rena Aqualife 300litre, dimensions are 120x41x71cm. It has two 38w bulbs and no co2 injection. It will have a layer of basic tetra substrate topped with small grade pea gravel, i have one large piece of bogwood which i plan to attach some moss, which one i'm not sure!?, and java fern. Probably some vallis and swords for the background, i would like a short carpeting plant but not too sure if any would grow in this set up? Another thing, there might be some delay in my replies as i'm from Scotland and i have just realised your all from America! Your probably all tucked up un bed just now! Hope your all doing well in that big crazy country of yours, exciting times for you all, i can feel the buzz about Obama over here!!
