New with a 20gal planted! Can use all around advice.

Hey everybody i have had this tank for 4 months now and just recently changed my tank to a more natural looking planted tank. I can use some help idenifying some plants. And also i am a well aware that my tank is over populated :/ i was very compulsive when i first started and i dont want to get rid of any!

The Fish:
Figure 8 Puffer
Leapord Puffer
Rainbow Shark
Leoprinus Fasciatus?
Clown Loach
Pearl Gourami
Bala Shark
Pictus Shark
and a Pleco

Thanks, Clay

Welcome to AA!! We are glad to have you!

Unfortunately you have at least 1 non-aquatic species in there. To the left of the Bacopa in the front right side of the tank is a plant called Ophiopogon japonica. It will not survive submerged in your tank.

As you said, your tank is extremely overstocked. Some of the fish you have would by themselves require a 125+ tank when grown.

That is what i believe i saw was "mondo grass" correct? i have read that it is not aquatic but will survive for a few months. i unfortunately read that after buying it. =/
