Ok, the time has come...
My tank is being set up as we speak the cycling process will start in a few
hours. I am looking for a some plant specimens for introduction into the
tank in about 2 weeks, or once it's stable. Specifically looking for these,
I have tried all the locals and these either aren't carried or were not
healthy enough to warrant buying.
Here is a brief list of most of the plant s I would like to have planted.
Until I get some high wattage bulbs I am limiting myself to dim to med light
plants. right now I have about 1 watt per gallon. Obviously this isn't
going to suffice. Any recommendations or hints would be helpful. I have
posted size and light requirements for as many as I could find in my books.
If there are any practical corrections please send em my way. This is a
list in progress, my concern is that I won't be providing enough light for
some of these specimens in a 37 gallon dual tube fixture. With that kind of
depth anyone know what kind of light is hitting the bottom?

5" ~~Med light~~
Anubias barteri var. nana

24" ~~med light~~
Vesicularia dubyana:Java Moss
Microsorium pteropus: Java Fern
8" ~~Dim light~~

Is this a good start list for fairly hardy, good growing, get the aquarium
looking planted type plants?
