    Hi All,

    I have been in aquarium hobby for last 10 years. I have been keeping discus fishes for last 4 years. I now want to venture into low tech planted aquarium. I need help on plant selection. I am not sure which plants will be suitable for Low tech plantted aquarium in Indian climate (temp around 87-90 Fahrenheit).

    I plan to have following set up -

    Aquarium - 45 " X 17" X 21" (Approximate 50 US gallons)
    Lights - 2 X T8 30 Watts 7000K
    Substrate - ADA amazonia
    Co2 - No
    Fertz - Seachem Equilibrium + KNO3 + KH2PO4

    I plan to keep snails, shrimps and tetras.

    The plants I was thinking are -

    1. Java Fern
    2. Amazon Sword
    3. Anubias Nana
    4. Marsilea crenata or Marsilea SP as carpet plant
    5. Crypt
    6. Vallisneria

    Please let me know if the above plants will survive asian climate. Suggestion for any other plants are most welcome.

    Please also provide suggestions if you think I need to make changes in set up. I have aquarium with me. I am still to buy other items.

    You should try Java fern, Java moss... not enough light for swords or the others. Anyway, you could try.
