What temp would they be best at? In the tank are guppies, cherry barbs, cories and a betta.
What other faster growing plants could i use? Im looking for height, not width.
I have one 48 in long t5 2700k an d one 36 inch longt8 2800k, the tank is about 21 inches tall. Im always having problems with my plants in that tank, as i have another plant that grow in my 2.5 and got huge! i put it in the 55, and it promptly turned brown and disintegrated. the 2.5 only has a desk lamp with an energy saver spiral bulb thats 14 watts. im not even sure what that plant is, its like an amazon sword, but the leaves are rounded on the end, and the edges have a slight ripple. it was tall, about 8 inches, til it fell apart, now im trying to regrow it in my 5.5, and that has a ten gal hood on it, with two of the 14 watt bulbs.
I also just bought some green hedge, and returned it, since i found out it wasnt actually aquatic. I kept a branch though, and was wondering how i should house the little guy.
When i returned the green hedge, i picked up a small amazon sword. Im not familiar with this plant at all, and will be reading the profile, but if there is any advice or wisdom you guys can give me, thatd be great!
