Plants, I'd take out the anubias from the sand.. It needs it's rhizome out of the substrate or it'll rot. A cool idea is to take some white cotton thread and tie it onto the driftwood, pretty soon it'll attach it's roots to the driftwood and you can remove the thread.
Other plants.. I'd look into:
-a surface plants like water sprites
-apongeton crispus- gorgeous and easy to care for
-bacopa- nice, most of them are low light
-sunset hygrophilia- I saw it in my store, if they have medium light the leaves turn pink which is pretty cool looking
-any other hygrophilia- awesome hardy low light plants
-moss, like java moss for example- you can make a carpet, tie it down to some flatish rocks.
yes they are! i am probably going to do that today because 2 of the tetras always leave the other one out :( . i wish i knew this before i put them in, no worries though im going to do that right now.
i hate how bare my tank looks, off to go order some plants!
thanks for the suggestions !
