I've only recently joined this site and this is my first post, so I suppose a hello to all of you is in order. Hello!
Now, I have a 30 gallon tank and I'd like to plant it, heavily. I hope to remove the external filter I have running now and possibly replace it with some form of sponge filter (I need to do more research on those). Currently I have 4 adult guppies and a dozen fry in the tank, along with two (as the store I bought them from called them) Anubias nana plants, whether that is the correct name or not I don't know.
Basically, I'd like to know what plants are advisable and which ones I should stay away from. [My water is just a little on the hard and basic side by the way]
Additionally, I'd like to know what fish would be good to add to the aquarium, as the guppies spend the majority of the year outside for mosquito control and I'm thinking of demoting them to my twenty gallon. I was also hoping to add in some ghost shrimp, but they aren't mandatory.
Oh, I'd also like to use little to no fertilizer if I can get away with it.
In addition, if there are similar threads to this one that I have missed a link would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for any and all help!
