    Hi

    I got some plants of a friend that don't even know the plants names or research what they are what light needed.
    I need know so i can do all that,to grow them and propagate them.

    I have looked around and came up with
    Hygrophila difformis *front left and right*
    Rotala indica *side red plants*
    Nesaea sp *middle red plants*
    Limnophila sessiliflora *front both sides* pic 3
    The skinny tall green ones at the back are either Vallisneria spiralis leopard or some very tall Sagittaria subulata,

    Looks like a ficus to me. Hope I'm wrong

    The light green plants on both ends of your tank are probably water wisteria( hygrophila difformis). The reddish plants adjacent to the water wisteria could be rotala macranda and the plants in the middle are almost Certainly rotala rotundifolia. The plant in the second post with the thick leaves and stem is a dracaena or lucky bamboo. They are often sold as aquatic plants, but they are definitely not. Take it out and treat it like a terrestrial potted plant, and it will thrive. Leave it in the tank and watch it rot over a few months.

    Slightly off topic but is your tank an Interpet branded one? I've got the 120litre version.

    Yes that the interpet fishpod 120 as-well would you know what the hole on top of the hood back right would be used for?
    as it comes off and got a runner you slide something in to place. this my new one had a 120 before but it leaked and had send it back lol

    There are a couple of narrow black holes at the back of the hood for cables and such like - or do you mean on top of the hood? Mine doesn't have this...although there is a section of the plastic which you can optionally pop/cut out - presumably this is to fit an automatic feeder.

    I've had this tank for a few years and have been pleased with it - I really like the rolled edges. Do be sure to take care of the hood - mine has started to crack a bit where I rest it against the back wall when I open it up. I've also heard the hinges can become a little weak. Other than that, it's sound.

    Top of the hood Yes, I thought it would be for that, but can not find one any where that slides into place on the two runners. only ones with cup clamps to the inner tank.

    Hmmm... Odd. Mine has that but it's covered with a sealed panel. I'm sure Interpet must make a fitted adapter if you wanted the feeder feature.
