Plant Ideas Please

Just looking for some ideas. I have a 210, and it will be CO2, 4 x 96watt lighting, aquariumplants.com substrate. For looks, I will have several pieces of driftwood.

Shout 'em out!

Besides a diving board...man that's nice

I would recomend Anubias plants, I have alot of these and they look great and fill in my jungle style tank. You can also use moss and java fern which are great for tying to the driftwood. Please try to post some pictures, I want to see this swimming pool

Here is an old pic. I still have some of those plants and maybe a couple others. I love the anubias's. I also like Crypts too. And for reference, the wood my be moving to new locations in the tank. That mass on the left is actually 3 pieces.

My new favourite background plant is Cyperus Helferi. If you can get your hands on some, it is a beautiful plant that looks a lot better than Vals IMO.

some java ferns, a dwarf lotus or tiger lotus (for a splash of color), and maybe some moss as a wall.
