Hi, been reading off and on this forum for years, but finally joined. The first attempt at plants was good till I bought some severums home. So here is the start of a new tank, but have a few questions. First the stats on the tank:
40 gal. 18x20x24" tall.
Lights: 4 3x3watt gu10 bulbs.
filter: jebao 403. had it for a few years now.
currently stock: 2 blue rams, pearl scale gourami, and 5 zebra danios. going to up that to 10-12 i think.
plants: 3 chain swords, 2 crypts wendtii brown, anubias nana, and cant remember the other anubias.
I want to add more plants but I am having a hard time deciding what to get. with a tall tank and small foot print I know i need some stem plants and should stay away from amazon swords. But my local selection is lacking in variety. My thoughts are adding a couple more pygmy chain swords, a few more wendtii brown crypts, red dwarf lily, ludwigia repens and looking for another suggestion. The wife likes alternathera reinekii but I am trying to keep it low tech and minimal on the ferts if any, other then root tabs.
So any helpful incite or suggestions please fell free.
