Hello all. I am in the planning stages of converting my 29 gallon community tank to a heavily planted tank with just one pair of kribensis. I'd really appreciate any suggestions for easy to moderate care plants found in the same areas where wild kribs are found. Thanks!

Anubias gilletti, Anubias Barteri var. nana, Bolbitis heudelotii, Ceratopteris pteridioides, Ceratopteris thalictroides, Utricularia gibba ssp.exoleta, and Elocharis parvula were the only ones I could find. But I don't have any plant specific books. You might have more luck, if you tried looking on tropica, or a silimar site for plant information. Very few species actually come from west africa... Most of the ones I mentioned came from africa in general...

Use Anubias species, Nymphaea lotus v. dwarf, Ammania senegalensis, Lilaeopsis mauritiana,Bolbitis heudelotii, and I think Bacopa is also found there. :?
