Bright plants....not green.
 
Hey guys, I've been searching around the web and all I can really find is green plants. I really do not like green plants....well green in general. I was wondering if anyone knew of any plants that had different colors such as blue, red, pink...etc. I have a 20g tank but don't mind trimming the plants. So if anyone knows the names or links to some nongreen plants I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you.

Also I was wondering will pond plants be able to be in a freshwater aquarium. I really like these flowers but not sure whats the difference between pond and FW. http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/s...fm?pCatId=1179

Red (Nymphea maculeta or mixed)

Also there are some red plants on this page.

Something else to note is the more light in your bulbs thats in the red spectrum the more red your plants will appear because they will reflect it (keep in mind it can't be all in that spectrum since if they reflect that color then they need a fair amount blue to grow well.)

most lillys are of tropical origin and will grow well in a tropical tank the only problem with this is very few are small most will grow at least 5ft across :shock:

research harder there are reds, but no blues red or green take your pick.
You need to consider light green stem plants that will turn red/pink as they reach the surface didiplis diandra does that
