I have a 60 gallon tank with Rainbow shark, T-Barbs, Red Eye Tetras and corys.
I want to add live plants to give it a more natural look as the fake plants look REALLY fake and are starting to annoy me.
I have no experience with plants.
I have normal fine gravel that has been settled for a while (only one inch deep though). I will use liquid ferts and root tabs, no CO2
. Lighting wise I only have a 20 watt red submersible light atm. I am working on increasing the lighting.
What would be some CHEAP ways to increase the lighting enough?
What plants would be suitable? Hardy and low light. I was thinking Java fern, swords, Anubias nana, and some grass like plant for the front.
Thanks for the help!
