This is a discussion on considering some live plants within the Freshwater and Tropical Fish forums, part of the Freshwater Fish and Aquariums category; -->
So I am considering some live plants and know there are some that do not require any special lighting. Not sure of the names ...
both those plants should do well for you in any lighting conditions............They are both slow growers, but will tolerate a wide range of water conditions and lighting...........Make sure with the java fern, you attach it to a rock or driftwood with string or fishing line......Do not plant it in the substrate, the roots usually will melt off if you do that.......Check on some types of" Anubis".............some of those will do well in low light conditions also.....Your fish and your tank will be much healthier with live plants, plus in my opinion, it makes for a nicer looking tank....Hope this helps!
Thanks much for you response. Although when searching for information regarding java fern and java moss I noticed there were so many different names, ie I saw anubis but there were many others. I also read about some kind of fertilizers. I guess I really have to do a lot more reading before making the switch.
