Hi everyone! I was just wondering if there are any plants that are small enough for a ten gallon. I've been trying to research them on the internet but most of them will get too big. I'm planning on getting a dwarf gourami and I've read that they like plant shelter..... and I'm getting tired of plastic plants...... any suggestions??

~Many thanks.

Almost all plkants you get will fit in a 10gal. If they get too big, just trim off some leaves.

I have narrow leaf chain sword in my tank that would be perfect for a 10 gal,Ozelot sword and even many stem plants work in small tanks,just trim.All of this assumes you have the good light and a proper substrate.

Sorry, Ed, no. Sword plants like Echinodorus bleheri, commonly called an Amazon Sword and is very common in shops, has leaves over 20 inches long. To trim off the leaves she'd have to cut them in half.
