Finally took a leap of faith

Well, last night my yoyo loach jumped out of my column style 55 gallon. Went to puchase a new loach and bought 2 angelicus babies. Also I purchased 2 anacharius plants (my 1st plants). They were a pain because this is a new experience for me. Here's a pic of them. Anyone have any pointers for me it would be greatly appreciated. Eventually I am going to plant the whole tank. Baby steps.

Just as long as you trimmed the leaves off the bottom before planting and clipped off any dead/dying stems/leaves. That's about all there is to it with anarchis. Very easy to grow.

I love Angelicus I have one in my 45g community!

I remember seeing you're angelicus. My yoyo somehow squeezed though the tiniest hole in the tank. But anyway, didn't trim the bottom first but they looked pretty green do you think fhey will be ok? Also since I have a deep tank any pointers how to easily plant.

This plant can grow about anywhere. Even really low light. I'd pull it and trim those leaves on the bottom as they will just die off anyway in the substrate. This plant is definitely a background plant. I swear mine grows an inch every day in my planted tank.
