So first off, I went to my lfs a few weeks ago and asked about easy to care for plants I could keep in a low light tank, they suggested java ferns and anubias so I picked up Anubias nana and Windelov java fern. As of now the roots off the rhizomes on the java fern are black (and have been) and...
I am looking to replace my water wisteria. I want something that looks better on the lower portion while still growing tall and providing good coverage (heater/ filter intake). I really like my Bacopa but woul like a different color / texture( leaf shape). So in your opinions what are...
I'm wanting to do a 20 -30 gallon freshwater planted tank with fancy guppy's I would also like to add other fish
I'm debating between ghost shrimp and cherry shrimp I cant decide which one would be best I mainly like the cherry's for their color but I would like to know which one would be best...
So I just started a 30 gallon planted aquarium.
Here is the breakdown:
It's dirt. Organic soil topped with Flourite.
I have a single fluorescent bulb. Nothing fancy on the lights just yet. I hope to get there eventually.
No CO2 but just like the lighting-I hope to get there.

I want to add some more hiding places for my catfish so they'll stop hiding behind the heater, and I feel I can add some non-stem plants but I can't decide on what.
Please ignore the lack of background I hope to add a black background soon^^
Since I know next to nothing about planted tanks, thought I'd show a photo of my tank and let you guys/gals help me plant it. Remember, this is a low light/no CO2 tank.
110 gal ( 24"x24"x22" )
Lighting T-5 2x54w( 1 Giesemann Miday 6000K & 1 Giesemann Aquaflora )
I finally got the back of my tank setup. I'm totally new to this so i figured i'd start from the back and work to the front. I'm not 100% happy with the placement, but i have what i need.
The mid ground is covered more or less for now, mainly because driftwood in the middle and i trimmed down...
I need a densely growing very low to the substrate (not higher than 1"), easy to care for groundcover that is preferably fast growing.
Anybody have any suggestions?
I was looking at riccia and baby tears....I have 1.8wpg of T5 (at the moment), fluorite substrate and DIY Co2.
