My anarchis is growing like a weed in my 80* water as well.
I myself wouldnt suggest pellia, its REALLY messy, i bought some by accident and HATE it. everyones preferances are different though.
Frogbit is great, grows like a weed as well in my tanks.
In my low light tanks I have -- rotala, aquatic banana, java fern, java moss, money wort, anubias nana, amazon sword, anarchis, some kind of Val, cabomba, water wisteria, water sprite, giant hornwort, morimo moss ball, and some other plants that I cant identify. They are all thriving! The rotala I might not recommend as it doesn't root very well (in my case) so some peices become un-wedged on occasion from fish swimming into it. But its a slow grower so it'd be great for a 10 gallon if you want low maintenence.
I find that my girls in the sorority tank love to rest on the banana and amazon swords. The swords would probably out grow your tank but you could always find a smaller variation.
For low light there isnt much choice in colorful ones, tiger lotus could work? I find that all the different shades of green make it colorful enough, also driftwood and other hard-scape decorations add color in as well.
I dont know anything about the substrate so I cant help you there, sorry!

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

if you want a little height in the back go for a mini sword or apongeton crispus. the crispus will get tall and spread along the top of the tank. or some hygro corymbosa(you will have to prune eventually).the hygro adds pinks and reds.marimo work well also. your lily will fill out most of your tank. checkout the symbolism of the nymphaea nouchali (stellata). it's kind cool, about the buddah's footprints.

btw. south africa has braying jack-ass penguins.very few species of penguin live in sub-zero climates. the magenellic penguin lives off of the coast of chili in warm coastal waters. anacharis does best in water between 60-74 but can do ok in a 80 deg tank too. choclate betta was right. pertinant to the original question or not. cut some slack, if you would be so nice.

I have seen warm water Penguins in a Florida Zoo. The Galapoegoes is very special not just current wise.

Question: What is considered the difference of low-light and high-light. Also, recommendations of each for gallons per tank?

Just noticed my first (?) tiny snail. Must have come with my newly added large Java Fern!

I suggest you drop it. I can post them and where they are from. RESEARCH. Not from Wikipedia.
