Hi all -

Anyone in the Denver area have some plants that would do well in lowtech/lowlight, and get tall enough for the background (20 inches)?

I have some misc. to trade, and will consider just about anything!!

how well do you do with rotala species? I have Rotala 'green' that might do ok for you, they are not that wide about 1" per stem, but they branch very good.

I of course have sunset hygro and Ludwigia repens that might do ok for you.

I have a few jungle val that aren't doing very well for me. I'm not sure how they do in lower light, though.
they should do fine, I had a huge group of them in my 36g when it was low light.

I have L. Aromatica. It grows tall and if fairly wide. I keep this in my med-high light tanks. I am guessing though that it will do well for you in lower light. Just so you are aware *I have BBA in these tanks* - Too much light I think. :confused1:


I am looking for crypts or buces (nothing specific). Let me know what you think.

The rotalas did well, and I had L Aromatica going for a while. But I've reverted totally to low-tech, low-light, no-ferts, infrequent water changes so I need something pretty hearty.

I like the sunset hygro. I wonder how it would do with my tank lighting.

It probably will do ok, I think that plant can grow in the dark.
