Why wouldn't it be? Are you running CO2?

I have marsilea minuta in mine. I love it, it's my favorite foreground plant It seems to be growing well without much co2.

BTW, 2.5 wpg of what? T12, T8, T5, pc, mh?

+1 on the Marsilea. That's a very good suggestion and it has fared well for me in the past with no CO2 and little light also. I especially like the deep green of it.

You could go with one of the Lilaopsis sp- L. mauritiana does well in low light. This is my L. mauritiana carpet in my own 29gal low light/no CO2.



Echinodorus tenellus 'narrow' and 'micro' would be some other good options.
