Any Ideas on low Light Amazonish Plants.
hmm, im not to sure specifically of amazon plants, i do know low lighting ones though
Dwarf Hair grass
Dwarf sword plant
and some other ones
Please not that these survive in low lighting, but they wont grow that well. they will grow, and will survive, but wont be nearly as good as a tank with moderate to high lighting. Also, just by saying low lighting doesnt help that much, how many wpg is it specifically and what substrate are you having
Matt, the Amazon River, even at its clearest, is not that clear. It is rather murky, to say the least. Any of the plants listed, swords, apondogen, and crypts, will flourish under low light conditions. I currently have a couple of Amazon blackwater tanks with swords, crypt and the like, seems to be doing quite well. I am using T5 full spectrum plant lights. Many times, it's the not the quantity of light (measured in lumens not watts) as much as it is the quality of the light (the amount of spectral light, the amount of the spectrum the light covers).
