I have a Q here. Ok so these work in low light but can ne one tell me which work without CO2 added?
All should if they're low light plants, LLPs don't require much light for photosynthesis so there for CO2 not required. Plants that are high light plants or even if you have a high light set up on your tank you are forcing the plants to go through photosynthesis much faster so they need more nutrients eg. CO2 being one of them. The plants in this list should grow with just LLS, ferts, and if u wanna add CO2 u can or u can use some type of liquid CO2 like flourish excell. Hope this helps!
These low light plant above still live happily in high light, right ?
It might not effect most plants that are low light, to have high light on them...
but it may cause some hair algae on the leaves of the slower growing ones like
the Wendtii Crypt. The algae in this picture is what you might get, just not likely
that much and in this case I think it's caused by excess nutrients in his tank. Algae I.D please
May be able to control it by light reduction if it shows up but more related to the type of plant and the fact that it's leaves don't change(being replaced by new ones
continuously like faster growing plants) cause it grows slowly.
Balancing the type of plants IMO is a lifetime effort of T&E...LOL...
But then that's why I do it...
Does lowlight mean that these plants can survive at under 20 micromols PAR?

According to Hoppy, 15-30 micromols is considered low light although other people use different ranges for low, medium and high light. Still, I don't think it would be a good idea to go much lower than 20 micromols.
