Yeah. Spring sounds way better to me... I hate the cold and I doubt there will be a lot of plants
Oh yes I sold quite a bit of it this year, it was growing like crazy in our grow outs outside. During the winter I cut back a lot on the amount of plants I keep, I just don't have enough lights.

I just got some Duck Weed but I don't think it is doing well. I also have:

Java Moss
Java Fern
Water Wisteria
Round Leaf Anubias

I think the Java Moss and Java Fern are doing okay. No growth yet that I can tell but they are not dying. The Water Wisteria and Anacharis look like they are doing well. I think my Round Leaf Anubiasis dying though...

I have a very low tech set up in a 5.5 gravel tank. I have a 6500 bulb and I add Leaf Zone once a week. I really love the look of planted tanks so I hope mine does well. Bradbury seems to like it.

In the 20G:
green foxtail
java moss
bacopa carolina
amazon sword
some random floating things - duckweed??
dwarf lilly
water sprite or wysteria - not sure but it has grown alot recently
somethng german sounding - seaweed like thing

I had some others but they went all gooey
Giant hygro?
pogo erectus

The foxtails, dwarf lilly and water sprite thing do the best. Amazon sword and anubias also do well. The bacopa carolina - i find it floating every day. I think my snails knock it out of the sand

I want something to carpet the bottom...but i need something that is easy and not a high light plant

i do suggest dwarf saggitaria. micro swords also do well if your lightin is good enough. usually carpeting plants need co2 and highlight considerations, otherwise they wont carpet and will grow upwards instead.

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
