Looking For Realistic Fake Plants

I have a 220g that needs some plants in it. In the past I have always used real pants but for this tank it just cant be done. I have a group of Geophagus that will uproot anything I plant and a group of silver dollars that will eat anything I plant.

What I am looking for is some good realistic fake plants. Anyone know of a good brand that has some options?

I believe Fluval has some real looking fake plants on amazon, they have like a Java fern that's abt 10 in? And marineland makes a 3ft bamboo that looks pretty good, best part is it's only $10 online haha

You need to visit few fish stores. Some of the fake plants look very good. Even now they make fake woods which look very good. You just to see for yourself and choose which you like more and yes I once put silver dollars in my planted tank and they ate many of my plants.

Petsmart has National Geographic fake plants that look good. Just be sure to compare the instore price with petsmart.com online price, it seems like everything is about $1 less online and they will match it in the store.

I test so often, I think I'm doing water changes 5 Milliliters at a time.

Also check out silk and plastic plants at discount stores and I've seen quite a lot at Dollar stores too. I think Walmart has good prices on Fake Aquarium plants. Or Ebay. Good Luck.
