Need help with plants/equipment for tank
Hi, I have a 90 Gallon tank which contains about 24 small to medium community freshwater fish. I would like to add a decent amount of plants. I don't want to deal with the hassle of Co2 if I can avoid it. First question, I have a fairly large wet dry filter with about 6 gallons of bio-balls, I'm guessing it is very well oxygenated, is this going to hurt my chances of growing plants without a co2 setup or am I of base here. I've read that if you have alot of light (somewhere over 3 wpg) you may need co2. what is the corolation there? If I can add plants without co2, how much light should I use, and what are some hardy low light plants to start with?
