foreground plant
i was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good foreground plant. i want to get it to grow all along the bottom and maybe on the driftwood. the only thing i can think of is java moss, so i was just wondering if anyone else had any luck with other good plants for what i am trying to do.

What is your lighting level? Java Moss works well in low light.

Our light levels are 3-10k, 1-20k PC's.

As I said in another post I do not believe that I could kill it if I tried.

Can be planted or tied to wood and rocks.

My ligting is 2 2-65W Compacts (ie. 260W) with one blue actinic bulb.

My tank is 110G and 30" deep.

How many Watts per gallon do you have? For low light plants, you want about 1.5-2 W per g. Moderate light plants between 2 - 3 W/g. You might be able to get away with less W/g if you have a shallow tank.
