wow theres so much choice but my local store only stocks the same 5 plants usually so may have to branch out to get some more.

All mine are green as well so which would add some viberant colour to the tank to give it more appeal.

Theres a lot to take in with learning all the correct names...... they arnt labelled well at the store either just coded so i cant get names from the staff -_-

I either got the plants from members here or I ordered it online. Not much selection locally - sometimes I find an actual aquatic plant in a tube at petco but even then - its usually dead or dying.

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.
would liquid Co2 work? I have a bottle of that and a bottle of API leaf something and a small bottle of Aqueon's plant nutrient stuff.

Lighting is a basic T8. Is there a better bulb to get? I don't want to buy a new or expensive light strip and I know zoo med has a bunch of different tube lights but I dont know if they are for reef tanks or what. ALso I am not sure of they work with the aqueon light strip I have (current bulb has 2 prongs if that means anything)
...lighting confuses me

To add CO2 to my 10gal tank I use one of the Nutrafin Natural Plant System kits. It's basically a canister that you put sugar, water and two different packets the kit comes with. The canister hooks up to a bubble-holder with some tubing and the bubbles hang out in it inside the tank. I believe you can just buy some yeast and some other ingredient from the grocery store to refill the canisters monthly instead of buying the packet refills from Nutrafin.
