Hello. I have a 600L tank with just some sand and rocks and my baby oscar. Only about 500L of water because of a background.
Are there any plants that I can put directly in the sand, or between rocks, and not have to care about too much?
For light, I have 10x 10W (10x800 lumens) led projectors, 5000-6000K white.
Thanks. :)

valisneria, some echinodorus, anubias, anything with solid stems and leaves. you can also use some pond plants as they do very good but mostly need a part above water too

160 gallon south american
190 gallon malawi

in between the rocks - java fern. They don't do so well in the substrate.

would go with echinodorus (amazon swords), those don't need much light and will grow grow grow ...

Thanks for the ideas I will check them. :)
I don't want to put a CO2 thing you think that can still work?
