One of my LFS's sell most all of their aquatic plants in what I describe as a small plastic basket.
Their plants look far superior to anything I have seen locally (there's some ruff looking stuff in some of these shops).
My question: is it okay to leave some of the plants in my aquarium in the basket?
I'm trying to cycle my tank so I want to add more plants.
I'm not going to decide on how to stock until I see what my final ph looks like... I would prefer to stock based on my tank ph and not add fish that require me to continually buffer the water to meet the needs of my fish. I hope that makes sense!?
Since I'm not sure of my fish selection I don't want to buy products and perform a final aquascape yet as the aquascape needs could be different for different species...
So I think "mobile plants" might be a good option?.
I also was thinking that leaving the plants in the basket would make it a little easier to clean the gravel without affecting the plants?
My thoughts are 6-7 plants in a 29 gallon.
