not sure which plants to get...
I was wondering if you guys could help me out. My tank has a naturally high pH (7.6) and I keep the water at around 75 degrees, and I was wondering what kinds of plants would be ok to put in it. It's a ten gallon tank with a 10 watt florescent light, that I only have on for two hours a day at most and algae has been blooming like crazy lately and I've been wanting to try live plants for a while anyway, so I figured they would be the best way to get rid of this algae problem. I have small, loose gravel as substrate and I have already purchased the Flourish Comprehensive Supplement for the Planted Aquarium. I was hoping to get a floating plant, and a couple of substrate rooted plants. I'm headed to the fish store tomorrow and suggestions would be helpful since I trust your opinions more than those of the pet store employees.
