Ludwigia Natans (Ludwigia repens) Easy plant, the reds come out better with micronutrient dosing.
Hemianthus Callitrichoides Tricky plant... DSM is best if you want to go low-light.
Alernatherea Reineckii Var. Roseafolia If you want low-light without CO2, then don't even try this one.
Cryptocoryne Blassii Nice plant, interesting colors, but gets huge.
Echinodorus Red Flame See St. Elmo.
Echinodorus ‘Frans Stoffels’ " "
Hygrophila corymbosa Works well in medium light.. Not really a bid fan of this one.
Echinodorus ‘Kleiner Prinz’ See St. Elmo.. Does remain quite small- nice for 10G's.
Ludwigia Glandulosa (Ludwigia Peruensis) Difficult plant, needs high light and CO2.
Echinodorus Indian Red See St. Elmo.
Fontinalis Antipyretica (Willow Moss) Nice moss, grows slowly though. Be on lookout for algae.
Nymphaea Stellata (Dwarf Lily) I love this plant- I have them in a tub pond outside.
Pennywort Great stem plant. Pretty hard to kill. Best left floating IMO.
Thank you Redchigh, thats the kinda information I was looking for with these plants. Still not sure what plants I will actually try. I still have awhile before I will be re doing my 29 gallon tank. So have plenty of time to decide. I am going for a high lighted tank with co2. So those plants should work out okay then, I am also thinking of dosing EI ferts in this tank. So the Micronutrients should be there for them.
