CKJ I have always loved Anubial, java moss and java fern. I haven't killed those yet. lol the java fern isn't looking great but they've looked worse.

Lately though with help from a friend i've got some new plants and i'm really loving this little crypt! Was so happy when it didn't melt!!!!

somewhatshocked I've fallen in love with UG and glosso over the past month (see journal for both here).

Have always been a huge fan of S. repens and floaters until I realized how beautiful the two carpeting plants I mentioned above can be in smaller environments.

Coursair Black Kuhli Loaches are social. Get a group if possible.

I use sand, but I put Osmocote + in gel caps in first or at least bury it over an inch down. Deeper is better.

I use Leaf Zone weekly after PWCs.
No issues with my Shrimp and they are MORE sensitive than fish.

I have low light/low tech tanks.

I love Crypts ! I have several types.

C. Lutea ?

C. pontederiifolia
Attachment 35774

C. Wendtii is the bronze colored in front of the Lutea. And my Scarlet Badis for scale.
Attachment 35775

10g always needs a trim, but my Shrimp n fish love having some jungle to hide in.

Fav. stems: Ludwigia Repens (keeps some pink/red tones even in my tanks) , Myriophyllium Mattagrossense ( fine leaved and pretty). Both grow like weeds, but still pretty. I need to rearrange my mess but here's a FTS
Attachment 35776

And my other tank, mostly Crypts with some stems to help cycle it.
C. Wendtii again
Attachment 35777

I'll try to get better pics of my plants.

I have Dwarf Chain Swords as my front plants, not a carpet, but will stay lower in High Light. In my tanks, it's leggier, but took off after adding root tabs.

wetworks My favorite plant is Java Fern. I really like all of the different varieties. Whenever I go into an LFS, I always look to see if they have any Java Fern that will fit into the available spaces in my tanks. My current favorite Java Ferns are Windelov, for a transition, and Trident, for a focal point or center piece.

JasonG75 I've said it 1000 times and I will say it again. The best all around plant for a planted tank that help eliminate excess nutrients and balance out an aquarium.

Patriot I would say that my favorite so far is hygrophila corymbosa 'siamensis'

09-27-2011 10:13 PM
Plant keeper mine would have to be java fern, anubias barteri and Crypts..
