Before I went out and bought plants I put some Java moss from my tetra tank in to see how it would grow and well with-out effort it grew crazy so I took it out and went out and got some hardy plants (Water Wisteria, Anacharis, and some dwarf hairgrass) which the last I was very very excited to get. I also took some Java fern from my tetra tank and another plant which the name escapes me and put them all in. to this day they seem to be doing ok but the Anacharis didnt make it so i took it out and put the last of it in my tetra tank.
