Hi Ellen,

I've managed to get green cabomba to grow okay with less light - the red
form won't, try the green one and see.  Does the tank get any bit of
sunlight during the day?  I've got a really low light tank that gets about
an hour of sun on one end daily, and it grows fine on that end.

Another one that you might consider. atho not a "fluffy", to add a bit more
interest is baby's tears, Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea' - it won't go gold
in lower light, but it is still a lighter green that shows up well against
darker plants.

hope that helps,
