You have fish links too? I thought I was the only one with over twenty links to articles and sites! The link doesn't seem to work for me though..:ssad:

Yes, after using google... I don't have any for plants, I tend to just told things in and see if they work or not, great plan, I know.

Three Amigos. Great older comedy, if you care for the humor of Chevy Chase and Steve Martin :) Nat and I were passing back and forth some quotes from the movie the other day, so that's why I plugged in the pic. I wasn't trying to be condescending or anything, so I apologize if it came out that way.

Yeah, I don't pay attention much to the care sheets for plants. I just have some sites on hand for when I want to browse for new interesting species to try. Nat gave me this (https://www.flowgrow.de/db/aquaticplants) link a while back and I love it. It has a huge database of plants and the sliders/filters on the left side make it very easy to narrow down your results to what your tank parameters are :19:

SE Asian
Southeast Asian River
++++++++++++++++++++

Much of Southeast Asia is rainforest and the location for a number of large rivers.
This biotope aquarium simulates a smaller tributary.

ECOSYSTEMS:
Amudar'ya, Chao Praya River, Irrawaddy, Mekong River, Salween

WATER:
pH 6.0-6.5, 2-8 dH, 79-84 F (26-29 C)

TANK:
The tank should be thickly planted with plenty of hiding places among wood and plants.
Use fine gravel or sand as a substrate.

PLANTS:
Crinum, Ceratopteris, Hygrophila, Cryptocoryne, Nymphaea

FISH:
Loaches, Barbs, Danios, Cyprind sharks (Red-tail, Bala, etc.), Pangasius catfish [suitable only for very large tanks], small Asian catfish, Knifefish

PHOTOS:
White Water River: Borneo White Water River, Borneo, Borneo, Borneo, Borneo, Borneo,
Whitewater creek: Borneo creek


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Southeast Asian Blackwater Pool
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Creeks and streams originating from deep in the rainforest are often blackwater.
With decaying plant vegetation and few, if any, mineral sources, the water is acidic and very soft.
This environment provides a home to many species of plants and fish.

WATER:
pH 5.5-6.5, 0-4 dH, 81-84 F (27-29 C)

TANK:
The tank should be densely planted with a fine gravel or clay substrate.
Use wood to create hiding places and use peat filtration.
There should be little surface current.

PLANTS:
Cryptocoryne, Nymphaea, Eleocharis

FISH:
Gouramis, Bettas, Rasboras, Loaches, Glass Catfish, Cyprind sharks, Flying Fox

PHOTOS:
Blackwater creek: Borneo creek, Borneo creek
Clearwater forest pool Borneo


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Southeast Asian Mangrove Estuary
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Mangrove swamps are found through the world where freshwater rivers come in contact with the ocean.
The result is a tidal region with varying salinity and water conditions.
The tides affect some of the types of fish present in the estuary, although fish termed "brackish water species" remain no matter the condition.

WATER:
pH 7.2-8.0, 10-20 dH, 75-82 F (24-28 C), 1.006-1.015 specific gravity.

TANK:
The tank should have a coral sand substrate.
Use wood and roots to recreate the mangrove roots of the swamp.
Use an efficient filtering system, because brackish water fish are heavy eaters, yet sensitive to water pollutants.
One popular brackish-water set-up is to leave the tank only half full with water. A sandy beach is constructed and potted mangrove seedlings grow above the water surface. Such a set-up allows an aquariast to observe unusual behavior from brackish species such as Mudskippers and Archerfish.

PLANTS:
Few plants can tolerate brackish conditions besides the mangrove.
Java Fern appears to be one of the only aquarium plants suitable for a brackish water tank.
Mangrove seedling can be kept in pots as long as the bulk of the plant is out of the water.
The Mangrove will require frequent pruning to keep it small enough for the aquarium.

FISH:
Mudskippers, Archerfish, Scats, Monos, Tiger fish, Puffers, Gobies, Glassfish, Halfbeaks, Arius catfish, and Celebes Rainbowfish.

PHOTOS:
Similar habitat in Australia (Mangrove estuary)


++++++++++++++++++++
Indian/Burmese River
++++++++++++++++++++

Despite India's tremendous population, there are still habitats for tropical fish species.
Neighboring Burma (Myanmar) shares many of India's interesting species.

ECOSYSTEMS:
Brahmaputra River, Cavally River, Ganges, Indus, Krishna River, Chilka Lake, Chittar River, Godavari, Irrawaddy

WATER:
pH: 7.0-7.7, 6-12 dH, 70-75 F (21-24 C)

TANK:
The tank should have bright lighting, fine gravel or sand, and heavy planting.
Rocks can be used for shelter and hiding places.

PLANTS:
Rotala, Ceratopteris, Aponogeton, Eleocharis, Blyxa

FISH:
Danios, Rosy Barbs, Colisa, Spiny eels, Climbing perches, Badis, Loaches, Gyrinocheilus, Chaca and Glass catfish.

In substrate rooted plants, the
Cryptocoryne species are ideal. Many of these are small plants, up to 3, 4 or 5 inches, so they make good foreground and midground plants. Plus they have variety in colour; some are light green, some dark green, some reddish, some brown--quite a nice mix of plants. One drawback, they do not like being moved within the tank, nor do they like any fluctuation in water parameters or conditions. A "sudden" change in pH, hardness, temperature, light, nutrients, or being moved, can cause them to melt; the leaves disintegrate overnight into a pile of mush. Fortunately, the roots almost always survive, and new leaves will appear sometimes within a day or two, other times longer up to weeks and even months. But once settled in an aquarium, where water conditions are stable, they will do very well. They send out runners with daughter plants springing up, not as prolific as swords or Vallisneria and Sagittaria. Crypts are slower growing. And they can grow in near-shade as they are low light plants, so good under cover of other larger plants or floating plants.

Aponogeton can be used in place of taller swords for a similar effect, though Aponogeton leaves are less "stiff" than Echinodorus and will "wave" in the water. Some die down for a few months in the winter, but otherwise they are fairly hardy. This species have tubers, so look for ones with good firm tubers, not soft and spongy.

Many of the stem plants are from Asia.
Hygrophila species abound. H. difformis (Wisteria) is a good stem plant.
In floating plants, one of the best is Ceratopteris (Water Sprite), this is in our profiles (click the shaded name); this is a favourite plant of mine, I bought one about 14 years ago and the production of daughter plants on the leaves is so steady that I still am throwing out plants every couple of weeks when I thin it out in the Asian tank, all descendants of that one plant. Wisteria can also be allowed to float.
