10 gal setup


I am setting up my first 10gal planted tank and I am wanting advice on what plants to go with. I am using CaribSea Eco-Complete and Finnex FugeRay Aquarium LED Light Plus Moonlights (7000k) and Seachem Flourish Tabs. I will not be using co2 and I want this to be a low light setup. I want a thick grassy area up front and then in the middle I want medium tall plants, real thick and in the back tall thick plants. I want all green plants. I will be buying a small piece of driftwood to put in the center I think and maybe tie plants to it? But I really don't know what plants to get based on what I'm looking for. Thanks

I think some dwarf hairgrass, a few crypts and some rotala in the rear would work. I find them all pretty easy.

A little off topic, but I'm getting those same lights for my tank and building a wooden canopy for the top. My lights aren't here yet, and I'm wondering if you can tell me how tall the fixture is when sitting on top of your tank? I'm guessing a couple of inches, but an actual measurement would be great. Thanks!

The light fits fine with the glass lid. You just have to pop off a piece from the mount. Easy to do. I don't like mine hard mounted as I like ti be able to access the tank regularly. The light sits a couple inches off the top. So probably close to 3 inches from the water depending on your water level. Hope this helps
