I finally decided to add some plants to my 75 gallon cichlid tank. However, I did not use live plants because I: (1) don't know if they will survive since my substrate is crushed coral; (2) put African Rift salt in my tank to simulate the cichlids' natural environment; (3) do not want the plants to alter the pH of the water; and (4) know there is little or no maintenance involved with artificial plants. The kind I placed were the silk type ones so they look more realistic than plastic one.
