Plant Ideas

Im setting up a 20H low tech tank and i would like to know what plants other people would use for background plants,midground,and foreground cause i have no idea which plants would look nice or would be suitable for a low tech tank.

For this tank being set up IM running about 1.8wpg and the lights are directly above the tank and someone told me that the lighting is to much and i would need to use c02 if i want that amount of light.Its not a big deal i can just replace the lights with something a little weaker just wanted to know what you guys think.

All answers much appreciated.

It's kinda hard to do that because we all like different plants. I think the best what to go is read the threads on the low tech forum
and see what people are using. Make a list of what you like.

Them post about the combinations & if they might work together.

My best advice is to keep it simple pict maybe 3 Sp. of plants and go with that for a while.
