    Question Plant Recommendations


    0 Not allowed!
    I have recently rescaped my tank and now going to try to narrow down which plants I want to put in

    This is a pic of the tank (freshly done, sorry about cloudiness)


    The two plants in there are fake but would remove them for real

    Conditions:
    Turface Pro League Substrate (2-3" thick)
    Will have 108W worth of 6700K lighting
    No CO2 injection
    Willing to do root tabs and occasional ferts if needed

    Not looking for a forest, just some plants lol

    Any recommendations?

    You have a lot of choices to choose from, See here, Or from the stickys above this post: here.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    Lol, I saw that same thread, actually put it in an excel sheet and started looking up each plant 1 by 1. Seems like some of those actually require more than just low light too

    Thinking of maybe an anubus on the right side, I had thought Anacharis, however seeing them in the store they really didn't look good.

    I'm not a fan of Java moss, or plants that look like a green blur b/c of how small the leaves are, also not huge on the plants with 5 giant leaves but thats all lol

    I did like wisteria and the hygro so far

    Yeah but 108 of T5 has possibilities IME. I grow wisteria like mad, Hygro polysperma also [Be aware that hygro is an invasive [& illegal to trade] plant in some warmer states so take care of how you dispose of trimmings]. My Crypts do fine & the Swords as well.

    All floaters will do well [Though some do better with a calm surface [IE: Brazilian pennywort]] Anubias does fine in a somewhat shady spot & same goes for Java ferns. Java moss is obviously cake.

    You have a lot of options to go with. :-D

    Tank looks a thousand times better now. They had some Bacopa for $1/ bunch

    I hadn't heard of it, and don't have my lights set up otherwise I'd have bought it.

    Can bunch plants be planted?

    Yep. Just make sure the stems are bare. I have a lot of bacopa in my tank....it does really well and looks quite nice. It does better in a well-lit spot.

    How big does the bacopa get, is it more of a background or midground plant?

    Which species of Bacopa are you talking about? There are several types and they all grow to different lengths and have different needs.

    Ok, no idea about the Bacopa, they had it at a LFS and it was only labeled as "Bacopa"
