I am going to be adding more plants. I live in a cold place so ordering is difficult. And local selection is to be desired.

If nothing else you might want to try www.aquariumplants.com

Also any "pond" places. they usually sell aquatic plants like anacharis. But they can be seasonal.

Do you have a petco? They have live plants here.

just some thoughts.

so, i have added assassin snails to the 20 to kill off these pesky pond snails for now. they are over reproducing. now that i have plants and things in the tank... it seems like they are doubling in numbers daily. so i grabbed two of them. also put some ghost shrimp in there to clean up extra food and other things. i moved plants and took out some decorations today. it was way over crowded in there. just because of poor spacing and trying to make my son happy with as few changes in decor as possible. decided to take out the pagoda and the skull. the monster stays. it is cute and adds some extra color to the tank. though if anyone knows where to buy zombies for fish tanks.... that would be a killer hit!! please let me know.

This is the 20. Excuse the sand and stuff in the water. I didn't let it settle before I took the pic.

Looks good to me anyway.

I would not worry about the snails. I always bet a bloom then a year later there are only of few left.

So I do nothing.
