I wish I could give you an accurate list of the plants I have, but I don't remember what I brought home.

I have some kind of sword (maybe a mellon sword)
some java fern
some kind of crypt (very thin leaves, root runners like bermuda grass)
banana plant
some ground hugging, moderately broad leaved plant that is growing similar to crab grass
something with similar leaves as the one above, but it grows up and out

I think all of these plants are low-moderate light plants but I can't telly ou more unfortunatly.

I have a 50w plant bulb in a desk lamp hanging about 5" off the water's surface right now. Will this work for my plants? Is it too much? I want some nice growth but nothing crazy. I have a thick florite bed, so I probably only have 1.75-2 gallons in the tank.

if it gets too cramped I can always move them to one of the other tanks in the house. We have 6 others running so there is space.

by overdoing things do you mean algae issues or problems with burning up the plants?
