Hi everyone,

I'm new to the board and to this hobby. Looking for some recommendations on beginner plants that are hardy and forgiving for a newbie like me.

My equipment list is as follows:

-36 gallon
-96w total T5HO lights (2.6 watts per gallon)
-DIY C02
-Emperor Hang-on-Back filter (thinking about changing to a canister filter)
-Aqua-soil substrate

Livestock:

7 x Galaxy Microrasbora
7 x Cherry Barb

Appreciate any advice y'all can offer.

Welcome to the forum!

First thing you'll want to do is ignore "watts per gallon." Check the Lighting subforum for information about PAR, which is a better way to measure your lighting.

What are the dimensions of your tank? That will help us determine your actual lighting level.

Regardless, some really great beginning plants: Anubias, Java Ferns, Java Moss
