View Full Version : Plants for active tanks

I have been able to grow apontegons and swords in the past but my fish (primarily my pleco) has beaten them up and eaten them. Is there anything more durable that I can grow that would stay ahead of the abuse. Rooting plants dont work well for me because I aggresively vac the bottom. Also I just use regular stone substrate. I have been thinking about Hornwort and Duckweed. Any other suggestions? Another note; I live in a consumer wasteland. Anything you suggest must be available by mailorder.

I think some people with similar situations to yours have had luck with rhizome plants like anubias and java ferns tied to driftwood and rocks. You might give that a try.

Thanks for the advice. I'l try to score some anubias on aquabid.
