I had this eclispe 3 gallon sitting around for awhile, so I decided to set it up at work. I got my hardscape, flourinte and went to buy some plants. Well here is where I screwed up. The lady at the LFS told me that she would give me a deal on theses plants and that they were easy to take care of. Being the newb that I am I believed her. Turns out one of them is not truly aquatic and they can be difficult to care for. I planned on ownly using stock lighting and Excel. Should I ditch these diffcult plants and start over or should I see how it goes?

judging from the picture it looks like you have crypts and lebelia cardinalis. I personaly have kept them in low light and no CO2. They are true aquatc. The crypt may melt initially but it will bounce back. BTW did you buy them at Tong's since you are in Whittier? Come to the SCAPE meeting this Sunday and get great deals on some nice plants. Plus good advise.
