hi guys,

I looked throughout the forum to seel if there was already a collective place that lists which plants can/will live submerged.

for my own self-interest I'm setting up a new tank (newbie) and enquiring about:

1. Baby Tears (which will probably grow to the top of the tank)
2. Anubias
3. Anacharis
4. Water Fern

although I'd like an answer for these four, I think this could be a good place to answer other's questions.

if this topic has been covered elsewhere, please post a link to it,

Thanks!

Todd

Riccia fluitans is one floating plant which can live submerged if u tie it down to some weight.

What do u mean by baby tears growing to the top of the tank? Baby tears is a carpet plant which is easily uprooted and will float up but won't survive long

All of those plants will live happily submerged. Take a look at the "Plant profiles" part of this website for info on alot of plants.

sorry, I didn't see the "Plant Profiles" link at the top of the page, I just tried searching through the General Discussion forum.

But the "plant Profiles" area is pretty tough for a newbie to find someting
