low light tanks

Tierney Wayne,
     Thanks for your comments about your 29 gallon with eclipse set up.  I 
agree, I have the plants you mention and also an echinodorus bleheri, 
hygrophila difformis and rotala indica.  The sword produces a leaf a week and 
the hygrophila grows pretty well.  The rotala indica grows very rapidly.  I 
am going to try for a low tech sort of approach with this tank.  The water 
lettuce seems to be sopping up my excess nutrients and the algae has slowed 
down almost to a standstill.  The BGA is still gone.  I put in a Siamese 
algae eater and he is munching around happily.  I only wish I had started 
with a soil substrate.  Thanks, Teresa
