I've got a 55gal fresh, mostly tetras and danios. Using low-tech EI approach with 130w lighting.

Looking for some plants, especially foreground low carpet cover. Ideas?

Any aquarium groups in the area?
It is great to see another another active person on here from the area . I haven't found any freshwater aquarium groups around here, there is the GCCA in the Chicago area though.

I completely agree, they all very nice. Some of my fish came from there too and they do well. There may still be a couple bunches of proserpinaca palustris left that I had ordered in a couple weeks ago, it is a great looking stem plant .
