After some problems (lack of maintenance/trimming, one tank got cloudy, etc) some of my tanks are kind of bare. I used to like sweet aquatics, but they fizzled out and are gone. Do you know of any cheap plant suppliers? I like stem plants and such cheap, but variety is also important... I've had my eye on some Java Fern var 'Phillipine', Pellia, and proserpinaca palustrus..
Right now I need to plant all three of my set up tanks and have plants left over for some emersed experiments (a 10 and a 20l)
Want to reccomend species? Sounds fun! Here are my setups:
10 Coldwater Mosquitofish tank
Ph: 7.8, bright light, 26w of cfls
Shells stacked up for a background, black sand subtrate. 1 5" Crypt Blassii, dwarf sag rooted and floating, and overrun with elodea/anarchis
Ph 7.3, Mixed livebearers and cories, medium light (20w of cfls)
2 small crypt wendtii green, Driftwood with java moss, a couple stems of creeping jenny and bacopa caroliana, a tiny echinodorus parvula, andhairgrass plugs that aren't doing a thing.
20 Gallon Long (Rainforest/Swamp)
Ph: 6.3, Lots of tannins. A pair of dwarf flame gourami that spawn regularly. Several fry. Very low light (1 tube)
Large pile of driftwood, 5 tall and skinny crypt wendtii red, 3 Echinodorus Bleherae x Parvula, dwarf sag, duckweed.
Feel free to reccomend plants and suppliers. I like contrast, and unique plants. I even want to get some really hard ones like star moss and blooming crypts for emersed culture.
