It probably will do ok, I think that plant can grow in the dark.

ShyShrimpDoc I have Asian ambulia. It's a very low tech plant. It reaches the top of my hex tank quite frequently.

beginragnarok I have L. Aromatica. It grows tall and if fairly wide. I keep this in my med-high light tanks. I am guessing though that it will do well for you in lower light. Just so you are aware *I have BBA in these tanks* - Too much light I think.


I am looking for crypts or buces (nothing specific). Let me know what you think.

Noahma how well do you do with rotala species? I have Rotala 'green' that might do ok for you, they are not that wide about 1" per stem, but they branch very good.

I of course have sunset hygro and Ludwigia repens that might do ok for you.

tall background plants...

Hi all -

Anyone in the Denver area have some plants that would do well in lowtech/lowlight, and get tall enough for the background (20 inches)?

I have some misc. to trade, and will consider just about anything!!
