    Hi Melissa. Sorry for the late response, I don't come on the forums much anymore.
    The plants I have were bought about 2 years ago. 3 plants. I have since pruned and replanted the prunings 3x.
    The tank is actually alot more full of plants now than in those pics (the 29g anyways. The 5g tanks are gone).
    The pond snails (came in on plants) and Malaysian trumpet snails (free from Petsmart, they hate them) seem to keep
    the dead leaves eaten, so I haven't really had to clean it up too much. Seachem Root tabs are the only fertilizers I've ever used consistently.
    Other sites I've frequented besides here are (for fish):,,
    and for plants:,

    Best of Luck Melissa!

    Good Mornin'...i see i've got 5 replies to my first post.but i haven't figured out how to read/open them on here! i just clicked on ur name which brought me to ur have a beautiful tank! :) I think it might have changed my mind about using live plants....for some reason i always thought they woud make the tank look messy..dying leaves,fish 'chewing' on the leaves,etc...but yours looks much more natural and the plants looks so healthy...when did you 'plant' them? I think i'm gonna do some research about growing aquarium plants...if you know of some good websites please send me the links.Thanx. Have a great day :)
