What plants work best?
I have fairly bare tanks and im hoping to decorate it nicely. I have a 20 or 25 gallon not quite sure about the size with lighting and a few short plastic plants, housing two angelfish 2 pearl gouramis, one gold gourami and a kribensis. I want to add plants that will not pollute the water, comtribute to algae growth nor be eaten by my fish. I also have a small tank a little over 5 gallons without light with a gold gourami 2 ghost shrimp and three black phantom tetras.
I think the small tank is a bit too crowded to put plants in, any suggestions and if possible what plants are fine without lighting?
If I were to add plants into my larger tank how much gravel would be needed and what is your opinion on sand bottoms? My tanks are not heated and stand at room temperture but my fish are fine and been healthy for over a year.
