I over planted my tank with a fairly wide variety of plants figuring that either they would all take off and do well or some would and others wouldn't leaving me with a selection of plants that will work in my aquarium without having played guessing games... the shot gun approach to plant selection basically.
It would suck to have picked the three initially that would not do well only to have to start all over again.
The list as it stands initially is as follows: (in no particular order)
One other yet unidentified stem... of course it's the one doing the best so I'll find out today at the LFS what it is.
For my own benefit I like to write about some of what I do and I figured that I might as well do some of that here as it pertains to plants. Maybe someone else will get something out of it or even make a suggestion to help me with something that I stumble upon.
That's basically what I did when I started and actually still do.
I think you will find out what works for you and your system.
