to all longisland growers


i am cyling my next tank 10 gal that i plan to breed maybe kribs in but not 100% sure yet. looking to breed somthing though.

where would be the best place to buy plants and what would be the best/easiest plants to grow?
-as of now have no co2 but might make a diy co2.
-as for lights i was alittle low on money so i have a 100w reptial light hanging about 1.5-2 feet above the tank. seems good for now...
-have a few plants in there but kinda just random buy :x dont no names...

i live in islip (western suffolk)

let me know if u have some advice, thanks all

Matt, I can get you any plants you need. Feel free to message me!

Not many places to get plants.

Pets Warehouse in Copaigue has them. My prices are about 30% cheaper though.

Still, easy to visit the store. They carry a small amount of plants.

I found most rotolas (especially rounditfolia & colorata) to be extremely undemanding and fast growing. With the small leaves, it will make your 10g look better. However, it does make a mess if you handle them too roughly in the water (many small floating leaves). Crypts, java ferns, and anubias tend to be undemanding as well. Of course ferts will discourage discoloration, pinholes, etc.
