The plants are all real. I find that my fish like real plants a lot more. And for me, they're a lot easier to look after and replace. It also helps a lot with cycling the tank. The two little round balls in my 55 are marimo. I love them, and they look awesome in any tank. So long as none of your fish decide not to eat them. You get a lot of comments from visitors about them too.

Thanks! I just got some gravel from the local hardware store, washed it up a bit and put it in. It was a lot cheaper than anything from any of the pet shops around here, and it works just as well.

How cool! Im thinking about venturing into real plants. Can you just sit them on top of gravel?

You can put the roots of the plants in the gravel, and they're happy with that. And it keeps them grounded. Otherwise they'd just float around your tank. They're surprisingly buoyant. Or you can get already potted plants that you put into your tank without having to put them into the gravel. You can also grow all sorts of plants onto things like driftwood and mesh. It takes a while, but it looks great when done. It's all personal preference. If you look up "Aquascaping" and search the web a bit, it'll give you a good idea of what you can do with real plants and rocks in tanks.

Welcome to the forum Amie & Nyan. From reading your posts, you both are going to be great additions to our family. Lots of great people with a lot of learning information in here. I've made and enjoyed good fishy friends here and I'm sure you will too. Don't be afraid to ask questions and give us your ideas too. Again, welcome to AA. OS.
