NEED PLANTS, LOW TECH 29Gallon Dirted Aquarium


So I am starting a 29 gallon planted aquarium. Im using eco complete planted black substrate (60 lbs) and I have two lights which have a high output.

Anyways, I just planted a bunch of glosso seeds inside the tank, however, afterwards I found that these plants required a lot of Co2 (I know I shouldnt have over looked that), but I dont plan on using Co2 for now.

Im wondering, what are good carpeting grasses that I can use in this tank? Also what are good websites to order from during winter? Since I live in Colorado I need packaging that will protect my order from the cold during shipping.

Also, Im thinking about buying this plant variety pack for a "75 gallon". It is 18 plants, 6 species with 3 of each:

would you reccomend this for my tank? I want a lot of plants but I'd prefer to not have to invest in a Co2 setup.

I'd look at buying from members on here. I think you'll be able to find a package that will blow that one away. Check out the "for sale" forum. I've had great luck there. Lot's of packages available and some of the guys with lots of plant varieties will put together a custom package for you.

That's a lot of money for what you are getting. A single Amazon sword will take up 1/2 of 29g.
