This is for a 10 gallon tank and most of those, if not all, are not suitable for that small of a tank.

I would go with what black hills tj listed.

I must mention though, even in low light, no ferts, no co2-anacharis, hornwort, and java moss will need to be trimmed occasionally.

Hi, I have been following this tread.

I was looking for a low light simple plate that will provide cover on the bottom of the tank for very small fish or fry. Thanks for your suggestions, as I will check them out. I may go with the java moss, but for some reason it is hard to find right now at the local pet shops.

I had java ferns for a while, but I am having a little trouble now that some of my plants are getting larger. The larger leaves seem to be turning brown and deterating a little. Should I trim them off and keep the plants? Even if it is almost all the leaves on the plant?

jaarient, start a new thread and describe your tank and lighting. Browning older leaves sounds like a nutrient problem.
