[AquaticLife] Re: Live Plants......


Thanks Harry, that's a good list to have.
I went to the store last week and wrote down what they had, so I could read up and see what I could use.
I have 2 13w spiral daylight 6500k bulbs ready to go... I'm thinking that should be ok for a ten gallon that is only 12 inches deep.
The plants I think would work from there would be....
corkscrew vallisneria for one back corner.. it will need haircuts...
money wort.
anubas or java fern to tie to the wood.
1-2 marimo moss balls to cut up and stick on the wood.... as they are supposed to be slow growing and won't take over the tank like java moss would.
and a shortish foreground plant.... haven't come up with anything yet, I guess I can always see if I can order something, if I can come up with a suitable low tech plant for that real estate.
I should probably pick up some fertilizer spikes while I'm at it, to start them off well with.
The tank has been up and running for a couple of days, and has cleared up nicely.
I may just start out with 2-3 plants first, to see if they survive me.
On we go.

I'll be getting them at Petsmart, as they have many plant varieties, and they look healthy; so hopefully they do well. They don't however have any "carpet" type plants that will do ok with no co2.... if there is such a thing.... I've read varying opinions; so that will have to wait. I really like the little baby tears, but I've read they need co2, and I don't want to get into that, as it's just a little tank beside the bed.
