Re: [APD] Growing Aquatic Plants

You mention direct sun. This is too much for some plants. I grow several Cryptocoryne species in Tanganyika water. None are found in the lake. Very few will tolerate full sun.
Those that thrive in hard water, but not full sun, and not a full list: C. usteriana, C. hudoroi, C. beckettii, C. wendtii, C. parva, C. x willisii, C. spiralis, C. retrospiralis, C. crispatula var. crispatula, C. affinis, C. pontederifolia, C. moehlmannii.
