All right, I've done some planted tanks in my day and I've decided I'm done with the normal tropical ones. I've decided to make a tank showcasing some fish found in my local stream and lake. Of the five species I've found suitable for the aquarium, only two are sold at my favorite pet store, so those are the ones I'll be taking. (I'd rather not take any from the wild.)
The only thing is, I've yet to find a plant that'll do okay in 65-70 degree water, and I really want to use some. Do any of you guys know of any? I'll only need about four or five different kinds; my lake is pretty devoid of plant life so it'll still look realistic. I can't identify any of the plant species out there, that's the problem. If it matters, my tank is 30 gallons (long) and if I can get away with it I'm going to use sand, but I think I'll have to go with fine gravel instead.
If any of you know of any plants, please let me know!! I've been wanting this tank for ages but if I can't find plants I'm not doing it!!
Thanks in advance!!
