I have 20g-"h" with 3.5watts/g, 2 nutrafin DIY Co2, dose ala Tom Barr's advice & flourite subtrate.

Thanks in Advance!

What about things like tiger lotus, the red crypts, barclaya longifolia (sp), and even some types of swords?

I've got a few of them growing in my tanks, but I'm no expert. The reason I suggested them is they are rosette plants rather than stem plants, which means no arial roots.

I have a bud off of my tiger lotus if you are interested. The big issue I am having is trimming off the lillies so that the growth is kept towards the bottem of the tank.
