This is my first planted tank. I currently have 3 amazon swords and 2 anbia coffefolia plants. I would like to have a couple more background plants that will grow tall and rather quickly to add some coverage and hiding places for mid swimmers. Should I get a couple anacharis? Any other suggestions?
One last thing, I've read different opinions on whether to use carbon in your filters when aquatic plants because it can remove nutrients from the water that plants need. Right now I have 3 trays filled with carbon in my fluval 305 canister. My LFS also suggested that I use flourish excel every other day but I have read mixed reviews on this too. I have not used it yet and my tank has only been running for a week.
This is a 45 gallon tank.
