It would be a bit better to give a bit more information before answering this?

What are you trying to achieve here? Do you use RO water and remineralise? Are there shrimps (or any other inhabitants) in this tank and if so what type? and so on.......... the more information the better as the answer is probably fairly straight forward, but will vary according to a lot of variables?

Good job Simon. Finding out more is always a good idea.

@stephenong0288, the more info you can give us the better advise we can give you.

In general, Reverse Osmosis and rain water are good ways of reducing TDS.

Even tap water can be used if your tap water TDS is 150 or below.

      No plants ‘require’ CO2 so to speak, but it helps boost growth. Flourish excel is basically bottled CO2, so you could do that. Most red plants will just grow a bit greener without CO2. I have some variety of Ludwigia repens, and it stays pretty red, as the leaves reach higher toward the light. But the best thing to do is just try something. Test it out, see what works and what doesn’t, because nobody‘s tanks are the same.

      Ok does it require CO2 also what about Ludwigia Repens Rubin super red?

      I use two 24 watt fluorescent tubes on my regular 29, and am just able to grow red plants. That’s 48 watts of light, from one pink and one blue tube, so your 37 on a tall tank might not be strong enough when it hits the bottom. If you end up dosing excel (I do and it works fine for me) then maybe try Alternanthera Reineckii, or it’s mini version (also known as AR Mini). I’ve had success with that.

      Many red plants require white and red light, could be LED or tube, power isn't important, but need enough reach the bottom, but most important co2 is needed, or they don't last.

      This photo is more recent.    Any plant recommendations? I want to introduce more red plants but not sure if my light is strong enough, I believe it’s a 37 watt for 29 gallon tall tank
