LOL which plants do you want? Send me a PM with your list and i'll see what i can do. You definitely need a box o' plants; sunset hygro and ludwigia repens just won't cut it for a nice tank like this.

And you don't have to DSM any carpeting plant-- it's just a lot easier because you can bump up the light like crazy, which promotes fast growth without getting tons of algae. Do you want a grassy-looking carpet, or something that has broader leaves?

Sorry, I just couldn't resist seeing your signature. Totally subscribing as dutch is my favorite style of tanks.

I love the height and lentgh of the tank. I just wish it was wider. I'm also trying to make a riparium but will probably.need more lights. It used to be a riparium but it pretty much failed.
