30Gal long replant
 
I recently tore down my overgrown 30 gallon long. I am in the process of rescaping it but I feel like I'm missing a lot. I plan on breeding german blue rams again or apistos in the tank. I'm looking for suggestions...
Here is what I have available for plants to add.

Java fern
Anubias
dwarf baby tears
water sprite
java moss
crypt walkeri red
crypt wendti

Currently have bacopa carolina, red ludwigia, anubias on driftwood, crypt wendti red, crypt walkeri, microsword, staurogyne porto (I think)
I also have an unknown crypt I need help identifying, its the tall green one in the corners that looks like valisneria

Here is a picture of the tank two weeks ago before I removed the overgrown crypts and sold them. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/pH...=02-05-13c.jpg

Thanks, that's what (2) $2.50 worth of walmart plants gets you after 3 years of basically neglect.
When I went to pull them, the entire substrate came up in a mat/sheet so there was nothing but bare glass under.

Wow, a nice crypt forrest :)
Now, if I only could figure out how to grow one for myself.

I would try some fine leaved plants like Ambulia, L. aquatica, Mayaca. Limnophilia aromatica is a nice plant. And no tank is complete without a Tiger Lotus ;)

Some reasonably sized Hygrophilia, like kompact. And some basic rotalas.
