best plants for a 6 gallon tank with 3 guppies
currently i have 2 plastic plants and i would like to replace them with real plants, its only a 6 gallon so i need plants that would stay kinda small, the tank set up is a marineland eclipse 6 system, it has a full spectrum fluorecent, id like something that will look nice and not take over the aquarium i alos want to change the gravel and get something smaller and more natural looking that the current hot pink, neon green, purple and blue lol.
so what size gravel and what plants would you recomend for my 6 gallon guppy tank?
I use black sand with a black background in my 5g. If you don't want sand, I would get very fine gravel. The black would make the colors of the fish really stand out. In my 5g I have 2 Amazon Sword, 1 Java Fern, and 1 Anubias. All are supposed to be easy growers and require low light. I've only had them in my tank for a few days, but they are doing great so far.
I'd use playsand or black sand as well.
For plants I'd get cryptocoryne wendtii and walkeri for the back parts and the narrowleaf chain sword for the front/ sides this will grow quickly and nicely fill in kinda like carpet style. Alternative to it for me woud be dwarf Hairgrass (check our my aquarium log on the left here under my name, my newest set up "2nd New Shrimp Farm" has a big row of dwarf hairgrass down the front)
I wanted crypto wendtii too for my tank, but the darn LFS was out. Figures.
