    Maybe you can recommend something that's a tough leafed plant that's hard for fish to eat. I know they tear into romaine lettuce but leave the center of each leaf as they can't get thru it.
    Hobbs- Couldn't find the same forum where I saw the post about inedible plants, but I did find another one. Here's a link referred to in the post, http://www.goldfishparadise.com/view...hp?articleId=6. It's to a goldfish site but, since goldfish are big plant eaters, whatever can survive their grazing should also be fine for your silver $$.

    I think you're right. $90 for gravel?!?!? My friends think I'm nuts because of the amount of money I'm spending on my fish. BTW, my 75 lbs of fluorite arrived today. I was planning to mix this into my tanks this weekend, but I just found out today I have to do some work for a client this weekend.

    The link wouldn't work for me. Silver Dollars are huge plant eaters. It's the main food. They will eat everything in the tank within a week so I will try the onion plants and put them in pots. If they try to eat them I can just take them out of the tank and plant in another.

    Sorry for the bad link hobbs. It was working when I first posted. Guess they don't want nonmembers looking at their info. I'll see if I can find the original link I saw about safe plants for plant-eating fish.

    I have been reading also that all crypts do well in low to moderate light as well as hydro's, jungle val and echinodorus. None of the red plants will work in lower lit tanks nor the flowering variety. Those need brighter lights. Now that I have my pearl grass, I read that it needs bright light. ppttfff! More wasted money.

    I do a lot of reading in Arizona Gardens plant section. They describe quite a bit about each plant and it's requirements. Easy to see at this site just what light requirements are needed for the different varieties. http://www.azgardens.com/newaquar2.php Very expensive to order from them, however, as their shipping is $20 plus a $5 box free but they offer some HUGE plants if money is not a consideration.
