As the title mentions, i have no idea what i'm doing when plants are concered, so i need some help picking some

I'm setting up a 25 gallon tank for chocolate gouramis, there will be low light, and i hope to have the tank heavily planeted.

Sand will be used as a substrate...what plants should i get? and how many?

thanks

My first question is.... how low is your low lighting?..... What watt bulb do you have on your tank?

For low light plants..... You can get Java Moss, Java Fern, Crypt plants, Hygrophilias, hornwort, anubias, and a couple others....

When I first set my tank up, I had less than 1 watt per gallon, and the only thing that I saw any growth from were my crypt and anubia plants.... now with just shy of 3 watts per gallon, eveything in my tank needs a good trim job about every 2 weeks!

go to Tropicas site and browse thru it... check out the plants that I listed and see if any of them fit the bill for you.
