To be completely honest, I no longer keep plants in my tanks.

In my 125 it is all river rock and Tanganyikan Cichlids. In my 180 it is 4 large pieces of driftwood and 6 Redhook Silver Dollars, a 6" Jardini Arowana, 2 5" Onate Bichirs and 2 5" common Bichirs.

actually, I do have a 3gal picotope with ADS, and some small stem plants and a couple feeder shrimp and 3 Olive Nirite snails.
