Low Tech Ideas

Hi everybody! I am in search of some ideas for plants for a low tech 20g Long. I don't want to dose anything, nor have CO2 supplementations.

I have learned that I can't really have high light plants without dosing/CO2, so I am looking for low light options.

Here is the interesting part, however. I am a really big fan of Ecoxotics Freshwater Module, so if I just hang that higher over the tank, I think I will be good for low-light. (Because low light plants don't do well in high light, I would have an algae problem, correct?).

I really like that light because I think it is mercury free, and I think it is water resistant, but I am not sure it is the best fit for my plans.

By the way, thanks Brian for answering questions in my other thread!
