Planted Puffer Tank.

I am currently trying to make my puffers home better for them and me. I really want it to be planted but to be honast dont really want to spend much money lol. What plants are the most easy to grow ?

I would also like plants that will grow quick and quickly spread out to the rest of the tank?

Please reply a.s.a.p

Thank You S.askham

ok i dont know what your tank is like but if its brackish usually the only plants that will survive are java ferns and java moss , you could try other plants though and see if they work.

If its freshwater- cabomba,aponogetons,and other types of bunch plants

What kind of lighting do you have? IME any plants that will grow easily and in low light will not grow quickly. If it is a FW tank and you have low lighting, you could try anubias, some cryptocornes, and the ones that flamingonhot mentioned. I believe most fast growing plants require high light, CO2, and some maintenance to thrive. Maybe you should check out the planted tank forum.
