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. 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.
    That is a great site Lady Hobbs! Now I have to refrain from spending to much lol. Just got to window shop for now so hubby does not take the credit card away. ;)

    I also came across this site. It seems pretty detailed on what is needed to keep the plants alive along with a pretty good photo.

    I started a new thread so I don't clutter this one up with requests (if anyone even wants it)

    I created a "beginners" spreadsheet for myself listing all the plants Lady Hobbs had listed as EASY. To help me shop. It has sceinticic name, common name, picture, and 3 columns of info including water parameters, plant height, and how to propagate into more plants etc...

    I'm not allowed to attach the file for everyone to help themselves, so if you want a copy, please go over there and let me know. I can email it. Thanks.

    Can you mix fake and live plants? I already have fake plants in the tank, and wasn't sure about introducing a live one.

    My guess is that it doesn't matter, but it's better to be safe then sorry.

    It won't matter but... ... You will probably end up with a tank full of live plants after a while and no more fake LOL they look so amazing.

    0 Not allowed!
    Any suggestions for a carpet-like, low light requiring, beginner level plant? Y'know, one that is suitable for the foreground of the aquarium?
