Hello all. I am setting up my 55 gallon tank and am in need of plants or a plant package. The tank has 5 watts per gallon of PC lighting. I am looking for relatively hardy plants that a beginner will do well with. If you have a bunch of plants to sell or can point me in the right direction.....
Paying shipping is not a problem but if you're local, even better. I live in Redmond, Oregon.

with 5wpg you do have some form of CO2, right???

I am no expert, but I think that is a lot of watts to start out with if you are low in plants.

Sounds like you might have a bad algae break out untill things grow in a little. Don't get discouraged though, it all seems to settle down eventually.

That deal sucks.

I'm sure several folks here will send you tons of fast growing clippings, and I bet when it's all said and done you haven't spent half that.
