What are your parameters? (pH, gh/kh, temp)
What lights are you using?
What's you planned fauna (fish/invert)?

This will help eliminate some options that won't work well with your set up, such as plants that have higher light demands then you can give. Or plants that your future fish might eat (like duckweed or anacharis which some but not all species like to munch on).

I just installed my planted plus and after I rescaped and went through a melt period, I think my wisteria, corkscrew vals and hygro polysperma are showing the best growth. My floaters like it too!

Also- my tank is a 10g and I'm going with a group of male platies. I'm excited.
