I have an affinity for the lotus and crypts, mostly because they are extremely easy.

Does anyone have much experience with color under non-CO2 conditions? As I stated earlier I would like to move to CO2 when I get a bigger tank but for now am trying to get by without as I will be moving, etc this summer.
I saw a great tank last night that would have fit your description. Wish I had saved the pic. It had mainly crypts and swords with some java fern too.

Here is a thread I am looking at now. It's a very low tech tank but one of the best I've seen. The coloured plants are amazing.

Here too. Love some of those.
