As for red plants-
In order from easiest to hardest (that I have experiance with)
Crypt wendtii (red or brown is probably your best bet for true low light)
proserpinaca palustris (more of a copper color)
Echinodorus (red melon, kliener prinz) may turn green in improper conditions.
Cabomba Furcata (again, more of a copper-purple color. moderate light and low ph required)
All of these work in my light, which is about 2W per gallon.
I also vote that redknee limit the tank size to 20 gallons or less, but I'm probably trying to give myself an edge... All I have at 10's and 5's.
Oh, one more thing.
Are we allowed to submit more than one tank? (In 5 months with all the replanting and new plants, I SERIOUSLY doubt my tanks would be recognizable.That is, as long as I move the fritos scoops can off of the shelf.)
