hi
Freshwater Plants: Freshwater Aquarium Plant Species for the Home Aquarium
there are some nice plants here. :)
the anubias.anacharis egeria densa,amazon sword.
although i have suggested these,i would wait for other members to offer help
with what if any particular lighting requirements would be needed.
i think the easiest is the cabomba.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Finally added a few plants. Not sure if I like the middle one might return it. Water still is cloudy/tinted havent figured that out yet either.

could you not order the plants you want from live aquaria or some other place online?
java fern and java moss are supposed to be really easy, you could attach those to a piece(or pieces) or wood. if the wood was long/tall enough you could just rest it against the back wall of you tank.

hi
i like the plant in the middle,i think if it were my tank,i would put it
on the right hand side next to the filter pipe.

I was thinking of moving the filter to the middle of the tank. I have a glass top that I just bought so I can move it around. as for getting more plants. I kinda went WAY over my budget on equipment lol so I need to hold off on getting lots of plants in there for now. I also have wood comming friday or saturday so that will change the way things look too.

look forward to the next set of pictures then :)
you could put the filter in the middle if you wanted,it won't harm.
and you could always put a tall plant infront of it,if you didn't like to see it.
the water will clear,looks liie a algae bloom to me.

how exciting!

Your tank will be amazing. Planted tanks usually are. I have my first planted tank right now. It's only a 10 gallon, but it's got a TON of different plants in them. I've found that my little dwarf puffers LOVE the ferns and leafier plants. At night you'll find them sleeping either IN the ferns or on one of the broad leaves of the plants.

Good luck with your tank!

I like the looks so far! Maybe you could add some driftwood, that would look really cool! :) Keep us updated!
