Your Top 10 Nano plants!

What're your top 10 nano plants? I'm curious to know what people use, especially when some of the "carpet" plants end up being background plants.

So many fish to keep, not enough aquaria.

Anubias coffeefolia is my favorite of the anubias varieties, has great color and grows slow, perfect for a nano tank!

Pearlweed, DHG belem, monte carlo, rotala rotundifolia, ludwigia red, moss, and more moss. Large leaved plants like anubis don't fit in nano aquariums in my opinion.

Guess it depends on the look you're going for... and how small your nano tank is!

Maybe anibias nana petite would be more your style? I just think it's a great plant, since it does so well in low tech setups.

It does well growing for sure. But it tends to get BBA and Staghorn. The smaller the tank, the smaller the plants need to be. I tend to think they look better with small plants.

idk if this is your opinion or not, but im assuming it isn't hence the word need. This isn't true, I keep plants that get larger than my own tank, in my five gallon nano dutch scape. Including anubias. provided the proper care, tremendous growth.

Did you read the thread? I thought I was pretty clear about that being my opinion and that they grow just fine. They just don't fit for scaping.

I just planted my Spec V Saturday and I used Monte Carlo in the foreground, S repens in the background, and I glued anubis nana petite to the rocks, and it's perfect.

I saw when you put the word opinion in your first sentence, I didn't quote that I quoted the second part where a statement was made.

I'm sorry I didn't write opinion twice so you could understand. My apologies.
