my wife and I have a 10g planted tank that has: 2 amazon swords, a small forest of Rotala Indica, a single Aponogeton Longiplumostos(?) and a goodly amount of java moss. The light is a 20w Flourescent, Filtration is a Tetra whisper 20 (i think), The substrate is plain gravel. The plants are all growing well, I put the Rotala in around a month ago and it has more than doubled in length since then (from 3-4 inches to 8-9 inches). Most of our plants are on one half of the aquarium since the filter we have has a very robust flow and plants I try to plant near it invariably get sucked into it and have great trouble growing. Can anyone suggest some plants that can be used as background plants near the filter intake? I had thought maybe some kind of valisneria but don't know if it will grow under my light. There is no diy co2 or ferts added. I have a baffle over the outflow from the filter to reduce surface disruption and loss of co2 during the day. Sorry about the long post but I would really like to get some help making this tank be fully planted throught the entire tank. I will upload some pictures in the next day or two.
