Speaking of stem plants, I have a Brazilian pennwort in the tank, will it survive with my low light? Under the plant profile you mention it's one of the few stem plants that do well I lower light. I've been told by some to prepare for its death

If your light is what you referenced in post #1, a 48-inch T8 6500K tube over a 55g tank, then yes, pennywort will be fine. Most other stem plants will not. Swords [but not the red-leaf species], crypts, Anubias, Java Fern, Java Moss, will also work. Vallisneria, Sagittaria, some Aponogeton, probably. Floating plants (very important for most fish) yes.
