the type of plants you choose is going to be dictated by the lighting of the tank. If you are using a low light setup you will be able to get a nice smaller type amazon swords, some java fern, any of the different type of mosses eg, java christmas, peacock. everything you can diy will make it alot cheaper...

ok thanks how long would a light need to be on for ? i was think about this....

a java moss wall with a Glossostigma elatinoides for a carpet plant and Hemianthus micranthemoides and Heteranthera zosterifolia or

Eleocharis acicularis for midground plants and Mayaca fluviatilis and Bolbitis heudelotii and Ludwigia palustris for background plants ?? what u think

and do i need co2 ? and if so would it hurt my shrimp and b/nose ??
