Planted Discus tank suggestions wanted
The girlfriend and I got a free 125 with stand that someone used to keep as a planted tank. We currently have 2 xp3's on it cycling and have black tahitian moon sand as a substrate. What are some good low light plants that can do well in a planted tank with discus? We are planning on using some Amazon swords in the background but would like to know what our options are for foregrounds, carpeting plants especially. I have a high light 55 planted tank that is doing well, but I still consider myself very new to the planted tank thing.
With regards to the sand, it was orginally going to be a cichlid tank but she took a good look at the scape cichlids require and didnt want a rock tank. Any suggestions to make the sand a bit more plant friendly would be welcome as well.
Oh, and I would really appreciate it if you could post some of your non bare bottom discus tanks. I'd like to see what your scapes look like and what you might have mixed in with your discus.
