Hi again may I ask some help identifying the pland on the right and the left please
On my phone...so photo is rather small...
But plant on the non-aquatic...take it out of your tank as it will die if kept submerged...sorry for the bad news
Plant on the left looks like anubia barteri...as long as the rhizome is above the gravel it should be fine, but prefers to be on rock or wood
Stupid phone...meant to say "plant ON THE RIGHT is non-aquatic"
Plant on the right is sold as swordplant but is definitely NOT had two of them take it out and put in a pot they become quite lovely.
I believe it's Dracaena
Thanks for the tips. I have a florescent 20w hi glow extra day light in. Is it a good light for my anubia and amazon sword?
I presume you running a T8 tube? Remember lights lose their effeciency over time...which is why it's recommended to change them after 6months to a year...depending how many hours a day you run them. Also...it's better to run at least 2 tubes...
To get back to your question...it should be sufficient to keep those plants, although the swords might get yellow/palish leaves. The anubia is quite hardy...will take a lot to kill it. But...your choices of plants are limited with that lighting...other low light plants you can try if you want more plants later will be Java Fern, Java Moss, Anubias Nana, even Vallisneria can work...all those plants are rather hardy and easy to care for. Remember plants need more than just water and light to grow...you don't need CO2 for the plants listed (and what you have) BUT you will need to give them some ferts
rem that if you are using t5's they apparently dont dim over time.. the edges do get darker though (the older they are) and eventually blow.. thats why t5s are the new preferred fluorescent tubes
