What temp would they be best at? In the tank are guppies, cherry barbs, cories and a betta.
What other faster growing plants could i use? Im looking for height, not width.
I have one 48 in long t5 2700k an d one 36 inch longt8 2800k, the tank is about 21 inches tall. Im always having problems with my plants in that tank, as i have another plant that grow in my 2.5 and got huge! i put it in the 55, and it promptly turned brown and disintegrated. the 2.5 only has a desk lamp with an energy saver spiral bulb thats 14 watts. im not even sure what that plant is, its like an Amazon Sword
, but the leaves are rounded on the end, and the edges have a slight ripple. it was tall, about 8 inches, til it fell apart, now im trying to regrow it in my 5.5, and that has a ten gal hood on it, with two of the 14 watt bulbs.
I also just bought some green hedge, and returned it, since i found out it wasnt actually aquatic. I kept a branch though, and was wondering how i should house the little guy.
When i returned the green hedge, i picked up a small Amazon Sword
. Im not familiar with this plant at all, and will be reading the profile, but if there is any advice or wisdom you guys can give me, thatd be great!
