Vayu's 20 gallon Amazonian Biotope


I have been looking around and researching for plants native to South America, but since I've never kept live plants, I'd hope you guys could help me. I have a 20 gallon tank with natural brown gravel and a piece of driftwood that has only been cycling since the 27th. I'd like to keep it more heavily planted toward the back, but keep a nice open space in the front for my fish to show color and feed. I might be able to change my stock 17w florescent bulb hood if needed, because I don't think it will supply enough light. All suggestion are taken into account and thanks for the help, Vayu.

If you go to aquariumplants.com, you can search plants by region. Not sure how accurate it is, but it's a start.
