Exclamation Plants are Great!!! Please read.

Well, yesterday I happened to stop buy a LFS and they had two Water Wisteria plants on sale for a dollar a piece, so I got some!(: So I guess I'm just going to try some and if it dies, it's no big deal! I am going to try to order some floating plants from Aquatic Jungles in the near future though! I would also like to add that people said that African Cichlids and plants do not mix, but I did it and now my tank is nearly completely planted!! Also, my fish are more calm, they are healthier, and my water parameters are better than I could ever dream of them being; all because of a few plants!! My tank is about as maintance free as it can get!!(:

When my tank was all artificial, my fish seemed to dig the plants up and rearrange them often, but now with a Planted aquarium, they don't seem to dig at the plants, just the rocks. Also, my fish spawn much more frequently and more fry survive!
