    Did you ever get more light? Did you get your 75G up and running?

    I live in Ames and am starting my first planted Tank. Wanna share some info between Iowans?

    When you up your light you can get just about anything. Right now with 1 wpg and a 20 high I think you might just have to stick with mosses, javas and anubias. Even that's pushing it with 1 wpg. The hornwort is a floater so it's usually closer to the light.

    1 watt per gallon is not very much. Is your light T5HO? You could try javas and mosses. Maybe anubias. That is just such low light. Is your tank a 20 long?

    Don't be afraid to ask around on the forum. "Newbie" questions are always welcome! Usually people will answer your questions directly, or point you in the right direction. Once you get a little more involved and start a journal for your tank (if you don't already have one), i'd be more than happy to send you some plants!

    Amazon swords tend to be pretty hardy plants, so that shouldn't be a problem. Although i've never had dwarf hairgrass, i constantly hear that it doesn't do well in a "low-tech" setup (no pressurized co2). I'm not sure what your setup is like though.
