20G planted

I change my tank alot about once a week I can never get an aquascape I enjoy, Partly because I don't have much of a selection in my area. Theres limited Cabombas, Wisteria, Amazon Swords. So this is the final look of my tank:



its gonna stay like this for a month until i can get my hands on these:

Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Dwarf Baby Tears
Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Four Leaf Clover
Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Ludwigia Peruensis
Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Red Rubin

anyone ordered from this website? i'd like to find out if they are good.

i just stumbled upon an older aquascape of my tank and wow i really feel bad for messing this beauty up. well on the other hand the water sprite was torn apart by the filter current so thats pretty much gone.

those in indian ferns get huge i dont think it should be put in front and not so close together either but that's just my opinion.

I'm pretty sure they are Amazon Swords at least thats what they said at the shop but the selection is limited so I'm gonna stick with these for now even though I'm not to fond of them.

Thats a cool looking tank. ^^ I had live plants in my 5 gallon, but they are dead now. I think because I didn't have Co2 nor did I had soil..

it depends on what type of plant you have.some only need to be tied to a small piece of drift wood to survive.with a small tank theres no need to add co2 as the fish will give off co2.if you put plants that are of the oxygenation group like cabombas or water millfoil you won't need to put an air stone in.my 90 gallon only uses a canister and lot of plants with no added aeration at all.
