In the future i want to do an aquarium along the lines of a SA biotope, and have not had a whole lot of luck online searching for plants to include besides swords. Any suggestions are welcome!
Some info about the tank: It will probably be around 55g with a fair amount of driftwood, just to give you an idea for size. Substrate will most likely be sand and possibly dirt underneath. Finally, I would like to keep it on the lower end of the light spectrum, as I am hoping for more of a low tech without C02 or high lighting.
