hi jiko, you can try some grass type carpets which are relatively easier than compact leaf plants. Or you ll need CO2 for sure.

As per your 2nd question, you can decrease your phosphates to may be 1ppm, as its not a fully CO2 aquarium. Those PPMs are good only if you have good continious CO2 supply for your aquarium. Else, its good to go for half or one-third the suggested values above.

Some easy plants would be
Limnophila indica
Myriophyllum tuberculatum
Rotala wallichii
Crypt wenditi(red amazon in Gallif street)
Echinodorus tenellus

thanks for your reply. now my problem is aquatic plants are very hard to get at my place. the lfs i bought everything do not sells any plants. and other shop owners only want to rob my money. and they have very little varity with them and also very over priced. to buy plant i may have to go to kolkata which is 100km away. so i am a little frustrated now.

instead you can actually request a Kolkata retailer to ship them to you, it would be faster that way. Where are you put up?

actually i am thinking buying them from finsnflora as there price and shipping charge seems to be lower. but i am confused about the plants survival as they will ship from Bangalore. dont know how much time it will take to reach to my place via courier.
