went to the store today NOT intending to buy plants - just have a look around and pick the guys brain a bit - I wasn't (and am still not) entirely sure what I want... but the plants were pretty inexpensive (about $2 a piece) - I was looking through the tank not really sure what ANY of it was - he was steering me away from ferny looking plants 'because they fall apart' and suggested these other two
this guy has been in this same spot selling fish for like 20 years so I figured he had SOME clue as to what he was talking about so I foolishly bought one of each of the ones he suggested
before putting them in the tank I thought I'd go online and check them out by the names he gave me
green hedge and cherry hedge - BOTH of which I have read in like 20 different places are NOT true aquatic plants and should be avoided
they weren't that much money so I won't beat myself up myself over the loss if they aren't something I should use - but I just wanted to come here and see what you guys had to say about it
are they going to be harmful or just not beneficial? should I bother to plant them or just toss them and cut my losses?
