Some have been bought from pet & aquarium shops and some have been bought online from eBay. They average around $7 each. I have chosen safe hardy plants that don't require very bright lighting.

I'm using a combination of ambulia, hygrophila and wisteria. The hygro corymbosa I have in the front right hand corner was a quarter of the size when I first planted it in 3 months ago. It is now four times the size and has almost reached the same height as my tank. If I knew it would grow so high I would have also used that as a corner background plant as its very leafy and expands well. I might try and trim a third of it and re-plant it to see if it will propagate. If anyone knows or has this plant and knows if I can do this please let me know.

Absolutely beautiful tank! I have a question though on my tank it's a 10 gallon planted tank I have a zebra danio that survived a leak I had a few months ago I bought 5 neon tetras today and the zebra danio is being a bit aggressive so idk if I should buy more zebra danios so maybe it won't feel so threatened by the tetras orrr give it away and just have tetras?
What do you guys think?

I think you should keep the zebra particularly if you want to keep other types of fish than just neon tetras. Maybe add a few more zebras as they probably like to be together in larger groups and I'm sure your tetras won't be hassled by him. All fish get territorial when any new fish are added, but community tropicals will eventually settle down.
