So I need to get all new plants since the plants I had in my 125 are all gone and now I am setting 125 back up.

I want to keep the tank very low maint.

It will be dirt tank with sand cap.

Also I like to keep a very heavy planted tank.

The number to the right of the plant is how many I am thinking.

Dwarf Sagittaria - 60
Narrow Leaf Sagittaria – 60
Vallisneria spiralis – 60

Dwarf Amazon Sword Plant - 6
Rosette Sword Plant - 8
Amazon Sword - 3
Red Melon Sword - 3
Sword Klenier Bar - 3
Rose Sword Plant - 2
Klinar Prince – 4

Heteranthera Stargrass – 3

Moss Balls – 4

Anubias barteri v. Nana - 4
Anubias, Barteri Broad Leaf - 4

Are there any of these you didn't have before?

I don't know about the Klinar Prince or Stargrass but the rest of the plants are usually pretty low maintenance.

On the number of each I would think it depends on the size of the plants.

Great low light choices. I would not introduce the Moss(algae)balls.

Since most of the plants are South American my OCD wouldn't allow me to include the African Anuibus, and I think is a Euro-African? But that's just me :hihi:

I have Dwarf Sag & Red Melon in my Toxic Ten right now. Eventually, I plan to move that tank into a 20L. I think I started with maybe 12 in Oct? The Ten has moderate carpet now, still some substrate can be seen between plants. I would think by March it will be very thick and need thinning.

The red melons have lost the terrestrial leaves and are really looking nice. Still small but nice.

I had a Sword Klenier Bar both outside in my Whiskey Barrel pond and in the 10. It was a weak plant when I got it in a trade, took forever to get going. Never really reached potential for me. I gave to a local friend. I have a feeling If I would have gave it another 6mos It would have taken off. Do look for a strong root system on that one.
