    Hello, I'm new here. Looking to make a nicer aquascape tank then I have made in the past. I've found a tank I really want to base mine off of but I have no idea what most of the plant species are in it.

    I am new to planted tanks and am trying to plant a 10 gallon shrimp tank and a 20 gallon fish tank. For the shrimp tank, ideally I would like to have thicker plant coverage on the sides and only a little in the middle, and a floating plant and ground cover. For the fish tank I was hoping for...
