What would you say the best background plants are for 10g? They need to be low-light I think....I just have the Marineland LED hood that came with the 10g. I have anacharis planted now but my snails keep digging it up and it looks better floating anyway!. Should I go with java fern probably? But java fern needs to be tied to something though doesn't it? Thanks :fish1:

Crypts would probably work. As far as lighting goes, I would almost say ditch the hood and go for a couple desk lamps with full-spectrum or daylight bulbs. Should give you a bit more light, and it can look better.
