I've got a no-tech 5-gallon tank illumintated with a 13-watt compact flourescent bulb and it does well. I would expect you could have similar success and it looks like you are off to a good start. ...

Crypts can be a challange to identify. Without getting a better look at one of your crypts (especially after it has a chance to grow) you may have a balanase of ciliata. Both get large. If it...

I've got some java fern growing on soilmaster in a ten gallon tank because it grew there. It shows no sign of a problem. I've also seen bobitus and anubias that would over fill a 10-gallon tank...

75 Gallon Tank Matures

Marsilea minuta, dwarf clover. Grows in water. doesn't get too compact and is easy to thin out and never (at least in any of my tanks) gets tall. It's about the best dang ground cover there is.

Henceforth, I'm going to attemt emersed growth on anything that not a bread-and-butter aquarium plant. Who knows what you may see - maybe even get a flower that will really help with ID.
