Looking for easy to maintain background plant
Iím going to be moving and replanting my 125G high tech tank, and Iím looking for suggestions for easy to maintain background plants. The tank is high lighting, CO2 injected, and EI dosed. For substrate, I use lava rock gravel with a 3Ē cap of BDBS. The background plant I currently have is Crypt Balansae, and while I love the look, the SOBs have been sending runners all over the tank. I trim out at least 6-8 new Crypt Balansae leaves from places that they donít belong every water change.
Iím looking for a plant that is less maintenance than this, and all Iíve found is other crypts or vals (which will do the same thing as my Balansae), or stems (which are usually fast growing and need constant pruning). Can anyone recommend a tall plant that doesnít spread like wildfire, but is also a slow grower? Are Swords low maintenance?
If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, spend a couple of nights sleeping with a mosquito.
