Hi everyone!

I'm new here. I've just reccently started up this wonderful hobby again... Been busy the last three years!

Here is what I have can you suggest plants that will do well with my setup?

50gal tank 48" long
Aquaclear freshwater CF lights 260W total
Eco-complete substrate
CO2 20lb tank with regulator
Flourish & Iron Fert

In Hawaii it rains so often that we use rain water from a catchment tank.
I've tested this using a cheap tetra test kit and found the Ph to be around 6.0....

I have not tested the hardness yet, but I guess rain water is on the harder side?

I do not plan to use a heater in my tank.

Any input would help.

i buy mostly from petland in kahala and pets unlimited in kalihi. pets unlimited has a lot of plants that the other stores dont have, but they are a little more expensive. 6 stems of Micranthemum umbrosum for $4.00 is a little bit too much. (i think, whats it in the mainland???)
