I added some microsword to my tank to see how it does. So far I have been successful with many Moderate-bright light plants.

I added a live plant to my tank once. It turned my water a funny color, a few of my fish died and it was a pain to clean the tank.

A week later, I was back on fake plants.

I only had that happen with Non Aquatic species. My fish are 10x more healthier than what they were before!
