Really? LOL!

Just a couple of thoughts. Anacharis is a fast growing, tall stem plant and should also go in the rear.

sudz is correct in stating that you should visit the barter/trade and classifieds here at AA. Many members have clippings after pruning and would be more than happy to send you theirs, probably for no more than the shipping costs.

The other suggestion is getting your plants from folks who really know what they are doing (other than LFS). There is a really good planted tank guy on Aquabid.com by the name of lowcoaster. Check his stuff out.

Thanks again for the java moss! its doing quite well. I was amazed it was still dark green even after being stuck in the mail for 8 days!

Truly a hardy plant!

I'll have some watersprite soon. I have 3 plants floating at the top of my 10 gallon, once they get a bit bigger i'll send em your way.

Ok thats great Java fern i can get at a petco here, hornwart i meant like cabumba(spelling?) Java moss i have no idea if i can get at a major retail store like petco or petsmart i might have to get it from the LFS

also driftwood lowers pH right? cause if so i want like an amazon river type tank with the water stained alittle from the tannic acid but not too much, and i want floating plants to let light thru but not too much light ya know?

If driftwood does lower pH then i will go with Angelfish and rainbows and some rasporas or tetras but all in all this is what i really would go with

We are #1 w00t remember kids, Vote for AA!

55 gal
3 Angelfish
7 Mollies
5 Platys
7 Guppies
6 Corydoras
2 Blood Parrots
Alot of live plants
29 gal
