Low light plants??
I have a 5 gallon with a 9 W flourescent bulb - what are some good plants that will thrive on low lighting?
It will house two African Dwarf Frogs and I don't believe they are hard on plants at all. They mainly like to just sit on them.
And the substrate will be Eco-complete black.
Actually, thats not too low. You could try java fern and some mosses. Cryptocorynes also work well.
how many gallons do you have, that would make a difference for the lights and plants. about 2-5 watts per gallon. You can find out what plants need what. Liveaquaria.com gives some good info on their plants. Their plants are also very nice, they are the kind that i use.
I reread the post. For sitting, I find my fishes like Anubias leaves. It is a low light and hardy plant that shouldn't be planted in the substrate.
Java fern, java moss, crypts, and anubias should all do well.
anubias....they come in all sizes. Dont need much light and are slow growers
