I have a 75 gallon tank and I plan on buying a strip light with 130 watts ( http://www.aquatraders.com/aquatraders/pro...b654eb8ce39ec20 )
I need to change the lights that come with the strip, right?
Could I have a well planted tank with this strip without a co2 system?
Which plants would you recommend that would grow large in the back of the tank that would cover heaters and filter tubes to make the tank look more natural?
I am looking for plants that look like the tall ones in the back of this tank http://www.piranha-fury.com/pfury/index.php?showtopic=68863
Thanks for any help.

The plants in the back of this tank are Vallisneria Americana and Crytocoryne Aponegetifolia.
None of these require that much light, but the vals tend do best with a little calcium in the substrate, and the Crypto. need a good water-flow, (placed near a filter-outlet) to get this impressive.
The low plant could be Echinodorus Tenellus.
However, having such dense plant-growth at the bottom of almost any tank take a good deal of light.
