Hey, I'm looking for a couple plant ideas as I currently have celestial pearl danios and I know that they need a pretty heavily planted tank to feel a little more natural.
Right now I have an anubius nana from my previous tank and I put in some cryptocoryne spiralis the other day, as well as attached java moss to a piece of lava rock I had in my previous tank. I had java moss before in my tank attached to the lava rock, but it didn't seem to do well last time, I'm not sure why that is.
As for questions, I'm mostly wondering what kind of plants I can sustain with my lighting. The tank is roughly 25 gallons and I am currently running two T8 bulbs which are the 15w Aqua-Glo and the 15w Sun-Glow. I do have frogbit floaters though so I'm not sure if that will affect the amount of light the plants get very much. I am not running CO2 but I do have flourish tabs in the substrate. I do not dose liquid ferts at this time.
I am planning on hopefully introducing shrimps later on so I understand that having a planted tank will help them as well. I am thinking of getting dwarf hairgrass to try and carpet the front of the tank but I have had issues with it melting in my previous tank so I'm unsure if it's my light being inadequate or something else.
