So I am wondering if there is a good plant you could suggest that isn't a thinner leaf plant? Ive noticed some of my fish are enjoying hanging out on the fake plants i have, so i was wondering if theres a broader leaf plant thats leaves kind of hang over. Kind of like a lotus without being a lotus, dont think my light is good enough yet. A higher light isnt in the budget quite yet, right now i have stock topfin leds with some indirect sunlight. The substrate when i get the plant will be activeflora and sand. Ph i cant say until i see what the activ flora will do to it, if anything. But ive been sitting around 6.5-6.8. Oh and no Co2 yet, that wont be until i get the better light.

Look in to anubius it has a huge variety of leaf structure's. They also don't require substrate as you can attach them to rocks and drift wood or just set them on the substrate as they pull all nutrients from the water colum

Nice. That should work. I need to look at getting a piece of driftwood, i still have to put the cave i made in the tank. It still smells vinegary so im waiting. Ok so driftwood, substrate, and then anubius. That should work. When i get some monies im upgrading to a canister filter and a bml light. Pennies are being saved. Lol.

I saw some smallish, really healthy looking banana plants at a particular Petco that I like last weekend ... am thinking about picking up one or two tomorrow. There's something oddly entertaining about those plants!

you might consider placing anubias at the apex of your driftwood. the roots will grow downward to the substrate. if your cave can be placed in the area, the effect, imo, can be pretty spectacular. in my tank, the smaller fish hang out in these areas.
