I am thinking of adding live plants to my 55 gal, to hide the mirror background a bit.
I cannot remove it, and am thinking that it may be better to just hide the mirror in plants, instead of draining and adhering a background to the inside of the tank.
The only place around me that sells AQ plants is Petsmart. So ive made a list of the ones they have listed on their website. [Question, are these plants the same plants that are in the plastic tubes?]
Can you guys tell me some more about these plants? Im basically a newbie in this aspect. o.O
Corkscrew Vals, 20 inches tall
Caboma, 20 inches tall
Hornwort, 2 feet tall
Green and white Acorus, 12 inches tall slow grower
Moneywort, 12 inches tall
Anacharis, 2 feet tall
Water Wisteria, 20 inches
I need something thats going to grow into the top level of my tank, 12-25 inches...And easy. Low light, i have 2 14 watt energy saver bulbs right now, hoping to get a better light fixture, but its kind of a last thing, since the lights i have light the tank up pretty good, just not sure how they would be for plants.
Also, hopefully a fast grower, but id prefer a plant that grew more wider and more stems than fast and straight with one stalk.
