I am starting to switch my tanks to planted also .. but in the meantime I do have one 6.6 bookshelf tank where I just tied Anubias and some. . dwarf swords (I believe) and they have been living very well for several months. I add Florin Multi to it.
I just got some Amazonia Aquasoil today. Haven't put it in that tank yet but . .. I have had luck with anubias, anacharis, and a few other plants using just Florin Multi and low-tech lights that came with each tank I have.
Edit: Also, if you are a total beginner like me, I will say that I have seen plant packages on many websites called "Easy Life package", "Low Light Package", "Hard to Kill Plants" .. and so on. They all say you don't need CO2 and you only need 1 or 2 watts per gallon for these.
