Definetly try Amazon sword. Easy and grows in any light. Your substrate looks fine enough for its roots to grab. Since it's root feeder you might want to give it a root tab. Nothing beats the look of live plants!
You can remove the airstone as the outflow from your canister will agitate the surface sufficiently. Unless you like the look of it of course
Hi, canister only leaked because I modified the pipes to fit into my existing filter, I brought a new set of outlet pipes swapped them over and all is good
I will keep my eyes out for some Sword, I have fine sand substrate, I also have a bottle of Seachem Florish, would that be enough to keep the plants happy, or still need the fert tabs as well?
My Cory's love surfing in the air bubbles lol, so I have left them in the tank for now.
