That is a beautiful tank!

You could try some Dwarf Anthurium plants. They love living in water and with great light they bloom non stop! Several colors to select from or get several!

Thank you. It doesn't need any trimming, it is just right Really beautiful. I've always thought of doing something like that. BBradbury keeps touting how he never has to do much for his water care because his plants do ALL the work (almost), so I am inspired even more now lol!

Pretty low maintenance other than trimming (mostly roots) and removing dead leaves that fall in. I do monthly water changes, if I remember, but I do top off weekly and and fertilize every few weeks.

Truthfully, the amano shrimp and nerite snails do a great job keeping the deterius in check, and the bio load from the fish is minimal - it's almost on set-it-and-forget-it mode.
