Your most beloved plants in the tank


I have to say, mine has to be ludwigia Senegalensis, generously provided by cprash. This plant deserves my daily checking and has responded well to CO2 and high light.

Parkeri, generously provided by Joraan, runs a close second

Elantine Tiandra, generously provided by Joraan, a third as any carpet plant requires the utmost attention and care.

Peacock moss has also grown beautifully in my low tech shrimp tank.

What are some of yours?

My top 3?

Well, so far I'd say my favorite that I have in my 75 is Lagenandara meeboldii Pink. Its just big and it looks cool and its got some nice color to it.

Madagascar lace comes in second. Mine are a bit small right now, but from what they used to be, I can say that they add a certain factor to any tank. Its nice being able to have a plant that can grow huge and still not really shade everything below it.

Bannana Lilly comes in third. It can survive anything you throw at it, and still manage to grow and look gorgeous. It works very well when you trim it right too, and gets very condense and works great in front of darker red plants, due to its lime green color.

My top three for my 10 (since its relatively different)

Crypts. Idk exactly what kinda crypt it is that I have, but this stuff survived where nothing else could, and has now taken over and become monsters. I need to thin it out actually too, which I like when plants need to be thinned out :P

L. Atlantis. So....many.....sideshoots.....not to mention that color and pattern. Very lovely plant and I hope it keeps doing better and better

E. parviflourus, the dwarf sword as I like to call it. has very pretty leafs and stays super condensed, and is small enough where I can decide that it can be a foreground in a 10 gallon......I wonder if I could make a sudo carpet if I had a few dozen of these? :P

Very basic plant, but I love the bacopa monnieris in my tank. A clean, slow growing stem.

L. Atlantis. for sure! I purchased a dozen or so cuttings recently and I have had to trim it hard THREE times. Will be selling plants with roots soon.

I'm still somewhat new to the plant gig, only being in it for a little less than a year. I am still at the low-tech stage....low light, no CO2, osmocote+ only for ferts and pea sized gravel. BUT, I have to say I am doing a pretty good job and I'm looking forward to getting into higher tech at some point.

That being said, my favorites so far are hygro augustifolia, hygro kompacta and my anubias coffeefolia. Love the look of these three, especially the coffeefolia. I have it tied to a nice, dark piece of driftwood. The deep green, textured leaves really make it stand out.

I can see the hygro tropica becoming my favorite real soon. Albert, you weren't kidding when you said that I'd have a bush in 2 weeks. The cuttings you gave me....well, I planted them in the gravel and they've grown close to an inch already! It's been less than a week!!!! And they are holding their reddish tint. I thought they might lose it because of the low light. I guess not....

Thanks again for those, Albert. I'm real happy with them.

No doubt the L.aromatica. Just got it from kubra two weeks ago. This stuff is gorgeous. And appears extremely hardy (for now at least).

Thanks again, Kubra!

HC is def my fav plant in my tank right now. It's just kind of slow in terms of growing as of late though. It looks so good in nanos!

I agree a thick carpet of HC looks awesome and is an eye catcher no matter what tank it's in

Kuba, I need to take a look at your tank in your office one day. I wish I could keep a small tank here at main campus.

I really liked the Parkeris also. My favorites are Blyxa and hairgrass.
