Outdoor Tank: Plant Ideas
I'm in the midst of planning an outdoor tank. This will be a 100% natural planted tank using a soil substrate with a thin sand top layer. I'm hoping to be able to get some plants that will be able to stand up to Goldfish since that is the only fish I can think of that would be able to handle the outdoor temp range here. I live in South Carolina so we do get some cooler temps in the winter and some rather warm temps in the summer. Light will be 100% provided by sunlight and there will be no heater. I am planning for a low powered pump for water movement alone. I am figuring on having to do some pond plants that can withstand the elements here and hopefully some fully submersed plants as well. Any ideas I can get for plants or maybe even some alternates to Goldfish would be great as well.
BTW, tank size is 125gal.
