Cabomba is not good for your set up... But believe or not I did have really good luck in my low tech tank with a red tiger lotus. But it got a little more on the green side but still kept allot of red

Okay, thanks :)
I just have problems with plants that are "low tech" like anubias and anaharis... and some issues with hornwort... so I'm looking for alternatives... *le sigh*

The most stable thing I've got in the tank right now is my banana lily and some cardimine...

"Brad Pits" Mansion

Here is the "real" home of Brad Pit. I have a new ajustable flow filter on the way (Marina). I would say that I enjoy looking at the plants, but Brad Pit enjoys lounging in them even more. He comes out occasionally for a gulp of air, then back he goes, weaving and relaxing. He mostly sticks to the left side of the tank since there is heavier foliage there. I had a backing on the tank, however, Mr. Pit spent an entire day flaring at himself so off it came, and Mr. Pit relaxed.

Sorry for the confusion! The red tiger lotus is not a low tech plant but it still would do good I think for you. Water sprite is another plant that I really think would work great for you, christmas moss and rotala indica

Yeah, my tank came with the s15. :3 I know it has a high and low flow setting, but does it create much current? Doesn't look like it from the picture, but it's hard to tell. I'll find out in a couple days when I add water to my tank... but I'm just impatient. xD

Nice. I adjust the valve to low so it doesn't have that much current. Even on high, the current is very unnoticeable until you see your betta swims and stuggle to get by.
