I am switching form a 55gal to 75gal. I have never used CO2 and wil not be bale to add it till mid winter. with 4 35 T8s (at least 2 will be Over driven) will I be able to grow something like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis?

Currently I grow giant val (like weeds), annubius java fern and a slow grow small melon sword with 2 T8s with 2 bulbs at 12 hrs a day. I am psyched for the change but dont want to waste plants in the process.

Also. where can you get Malasian live bearing snails?

Lilaeopsis grows very slowly anyway...

Better bet would be Echinodorus tenellus or dwarf sag. Much easier to grow. I have MTS snails.
