I have a 29 gallon tall tank in my office at work. It has a 55 watt PC light. Close to 2 wpg of light. The object here is not to win an aquascape contest. All I want to do is put some plants in it that'll survive and withstand plenty of neglect.
Heres what I have to pick from (clippings from my 75): hygrophila diformis (wisteria),hygrophila polysperma, Crypt wendtii , Rotala indica, bacopa caroliniana.
I know the crypt will probably be fine, do you think any of the others stand a chance?
I plan on fertilizing PMDD somewhat, should be easy in a low light tank. I really dont want to use CO2. Water changes are like once a month. The tank already has some laterite mixed into the gravel and plenty of detritus.
This is not a joke, I've been thinking about this for a while and I think I can pull it off without too much fuss. I think the lower light levels will keep maintenance down considerably,since the growth of the plants should be quite slow compared to a high light ,co2 enriched tank.
Any Ideas? :?
