Plants Guide?

I am getting ready to design a low tech tank, and I am looking for a plant guide. A guide that has pictures and good ideas on where and how to place SPECIFIC plants in a low tech tank. Is there such a guide?

I realized that the TPT forums does just this, but it takes a lot of time to sift through all the post. I was just wondering if there is a quick reference guide out there somewhere...

Thanks.

Not so specific on placement, and no pictures (don't know of one with anything that specific) but good for finding low light plants.

Plantgeek.com used to have a nice, simple one but the site's been down for a while.

Do you see the link at the top of the page titled Plant Profiles?

TPT has high quality profiles, however if you're looking for plants that are specifically low light or just background plants something along those lines it's not as easy to navigate.

tyler, I'm sure if you threw out some plant names and posted a pic of your setup people would be willing to suggest placement options.
