hello im looking to add some plants to my 46g chiclid tank. i currently have some anubis growing out of the filter and along the back of the tank with the roots hanging in the water.
i had a whisteria and a hornwort. the whisteria got eaten i would say it was just pretty much stems when i pulled it out. i really liked the hornwort but it made a wicked mess the needles were everywhere so i pulled it.
i have an 11yo parrot fish a 4 inch dempsey, and 2 fish i inherited from my girlfriend. those are a real small yelow lab and a maybe 3 inch flowerhorn. ther were too aggressive for her new tank so i took them.
any recconmedations on some plants that might do well in this tank? or is my only real option to just only use the anubis? thank you, Mike

Java Fern is an option, I don't think any fish likes the taste of it.

the lfs didnt have any of the java fern. i bought a sword plant. i forget the exact name but it began with a q. he thinks it might be ok cuse the leaves are tough not like the whisteria i had. i got a pretty huge plant for 6 or 7 bucks. it has tons of roots. i planted it into a hole in a large plastic log. i dont see it going anywhere. hopefully it does ok.

Shoulda left the hornwort in. It has a tendency to shed when you first get it but it grows back. I've had a few stems floating for a month or two now. Not sure if I want more or not. I may look into other similar looking species that hopefully wont shed at first.
From what I understand.. yeah you're pretty much stuck with anubias and maybe java fern. There are numerous varieties of anubias however.
