I know in my 83 degree tank I'm able to keep java fern, anubias, crypts, wisteria, and hygro angustifolia (or however you spell it!). Like you, I have low to medium light.
They say vals do great in warm water, I've never been able to keep them going in my tank. Too bad as I know my Discus like them.
Thanks for the clarification aunt kymmie, I was just going off of what the fish profiles said as I have never owned cardinals. It is always best to hear from someone with personal experience. BTW, it is nice to see you around. I have not seen you on the forums lately, but from reading older posts it seems you are one of the more knowledgeable members. I am new to this hobby, so I appreciate having people like you and Byron for help
