    I set up a 10 gallon fry tank a couple of months ago.It only contains 3 small fry and some Red Cherry shrimp.
    Lights- 26 w CFL 2700k - it came with the tank -Aquatic nature's Cocoon 7
    Filter - Eheim Lyberty 2040
    Substrate - Dennerle Deponit Mix topped with some neutral gravel - the light is 11 inches above- the driftwood is leaching tanins so it's definitely low light.
    Plants - Anubias ,Hygrophila ,Hydrocotyle ,some HC ,some tiny Amazon swords and a bit of guppy grass.
    Ferts - none at the moment
    KH - 10
    GH - 15

    This is my water company report from last december
    The water here is really hard ,but the plants that I currently have are not a must ,most of them were given to me by friends.
    I don't make high hopes for Hemianthus ,I know it's not an easy plant to grow.

    The tank is low planted at the moment ,and I change 1/5 of water each week.
    I would like to ask what other plants can I use with this hard water ,besides Crypts and Ferns.

    Also ,do the parameters from my water company allow me to use the default Non Co2 Method ,or do I need to tweak it a bit?
    Help much appreciated ,thanks.
