Alright, i made this thread for the reason that i am really needing to get new plants. All the plants i have in it now I'm pretty much tired of. The plants that are in the tank currently are Echinodorus Parviflorus "Tropica", Cryptcoryne Wilisii x lucens, and another huge crypt which i think might be a version of Wendtii?

Fish stock:
3 red platys
1 gold angelfish
1 bush nose pleco
1 blue gourami

Tank Dimensions
24x12x18

Lighting:
28w coralife fluorescent light stripe

Now here is a list of the plants which i would like to add to the tank. I'm about 2 clicks away from following with an order from Aqua Botanic. But first i would like your opinions and suggestions.

Dwarf sag
Rotala Indica
Diandre
Cyperus Helferi
Cryptcoryne Balansae

Have you heard the horror stories about dwarf sag being not so dwarf?

Really? wow, thats pretty crazy. Well then that plant is knocked off the list. What other plants do you suggest I use? I'm not so much concerned with the fish, except the blue gourami is the odd ball of the group lol.
