I'm totally new to the hobby and am getting my first tank ready to make a start, figured i would do as much research as i can to be as ready as possible. Just wanted to check with the more experienced members of the group that my initial selection of plants would work in my tank 125 litre with measurements of 81 x 36 x 50 cm want to keep temps of about 28c in order to keep the fish i want.

Ludwigia repens 'Rubin' x 1
Echinodorus 'Bleherae' x 2
Helanthium 'Quadricostatus' x 1
Echinodorus 'Reni' x 2
Microsorum pteropus 'Windeløv' x 1
Anubias barteri var. caladiifolia x 1
Cryptocoryne beckettii 'Petchii' x 4
Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow' x 1

not sure it makes a difference but i am also planning to include some red moor wood and roughly 20kg of Seiryu Rock. Any help and Advice Appreciated.

Hi, what fish are you wanting to keep? Do they absolutely haveto be at that quite high temperature?

Wanted to keep a German Blue Ram, Cardinal Tetras, Honey Gourami's and maybe some Panda corydoras. So thinking temp of 27 - 28 is required.
