I would like to grow several aquarium plants and my water is naturally hard.  Normally, I draw water for aquarium use from my outside facets.  The hard water is great for Cichlids.  I get a lot of direct sunlight and sometimes block it out.

What plants will grow well in hard water?  Some plants that I like are Ludwigia, Anacharis, Cabomba, Hornwort, Vallisneria, et.

/_Vallisneria spiralis_/ grows everywhere. We've had one strain that Chuck Rambo swears he brought back from Lake Tanganyika and that we've kept alive in a 60-gallon with just sand on the bottom and 2x32W T8 bulbs for several years.

Hornwort is also found in Lake Tanganyika.
