New to plants.

I have a 55 and i would like to plant it with some inexpensive plants the only problem is that i have a few residents in the tank that might like the plants a little to much.

4 Silver dollars and from what i understand they can eat a planted tank in a weekor 2. They school with a 5 inch and a ten inch tinfoil barbs. any sujestions.

Your silver dollars are liable to eat the plants.

BF:

I will try to synopsize this tread and then set forth some of my own experience.

1) The plants which the forum members have recommended and which the silver dollars "will not bother" are:
Java Ferns
Anubias
Crypts and
Camboba
Beyond these plants the forum members do not seem to have any experience which they feel comfortable in recommending with respect to your silver dollars.

2) With respect to these plants I know from experience that the
silver dollars
will not bother them.

BTW:
I have two types of plecos which do not bother my plants but I have read that plecos do.
