fake plant website recommendation?


Does anyone have a recommendation for reasonably priced, decent looking fake plants? My 30 gal tall hex tank of tropical schooling fish has way too much open space. It's a tall tank so I need tall plants. I want like 5 of em, which would cost me around $40 at the LFS for lame looking plants.

Good links please!

Ebay, you can order around 6 for 20$ I believe.

I feel like I'm constantly plugging this site, but I'm continually impressed by their good prices so it's hard not to. They have a big selection of decently priced fake plant, including some taller silk plants. Silk always looks better than plastic, not to mention is safer for your fish since it's harder for then to tear fins on the soft silk.

Depending on the type of finnage your fish have, you may want to use silk instead. Plastic plants are known to shred fish fins.

I forgot to mention...that URL indicates that it's plastic plants only, but they have all sorts of fake plants, including silk, on that page.

Silk plants...

I personally bought 20 silk plants from a seller on Ebay. Her shipping is well priced, and she'll match the prices of similar silk plants.


I think the plants are randomly picked, but they are really nice, and all brand new. I got 20 plants for under $30 including shipping. ^_^

Well, I got my plants in today and they are all in the tank. I must say, it finally looks like home in there for the fish. And the results are great. With the added cover my Rummynose Tetras already feel comfortable enough to school around in the upper levels of the water column, which they would never do before the plants. Hopefully my Neon Tetras get the idea too.
