  1. Default Tall plants for 55 gallon tank

    0 Not allowed!
    I was wondering what plants would be good for a 55 gallon and low light that would get pretty tall. I'm wanting to put at least one angelfish in the tank when set up and was wondering if there is any low light tall plants. I have a bunch of java moss that seems to grow crazy but that's the only plants I've had experience with.

    Amazon swords can get pretty big and don't need a lot of light.

    Valisnaria's grow as tall as you let them. Mine get to the top, fold over and grow sideways across the tank blowing in the flow of the water.

    Did i mention my tank is extra tall?(30in)

    Amazon swords don't grow very fast IMO...they may get tall but it may take forever.

    My hygrophila gets tall.
    bacopa gets tall.

    Jungle Val, Madegascar Lace Leaf (HUGE!!!), Amazon Sword (mine are 3 months old and are starting to beak the water's surface), and ummm.... yeah, Hygro and Bacopa too. I believe onion plants also get tall, but I don't know their light requirements.
