New tank!

I've just ordered a new tank to upgrade from my current 55 gallon. Currenlty I don't have live plants but want to start my new 350 gallon freshwater tank with live plants. Will be stocked primarily with ropefish and irridescent sharks and some crayfish. I'd like something that I can plant in a sandy substrate that will survive and flourish.

check, they have lots of plant at great prices. The shipping is steep since it has to be overnight priority but the plants are healthy and very nice.

Most plants will do well with a sandy substrate.

What we need to know is what your lighting is, if you plan to use CO2, and if you want to use fertalizers at all.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

I bought most of my plants from sweet aquatics via bids on Aquabid. They sent VERY healthy plants and I would not hesitate to buy off of them again. They have a web site with plant needs there.

There comes a point in your life when you realize
who matters,
who never did,
who won't anymore....
and who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past.
There is a reason they didn't make it to your future.
