I am finally going to have my 125 up and running next week or weekend when my stand comes in and I am going to need some plants to put in it but I don't know WHAT plants to keep. I am wanting to keep this a "South American" themed tank and therefore I would like to keep mainly plants from that region, however, if a suggestion is made to me that looks nice and fits, I may decide to get some.
Here is a little background info about the tank:
Lighting: Will be 1.5-2.0 WPG
. I don't want anything higerer as I don't want to go CO2
injection yet and I don't want algae : )
Temp: Not sure it matters a whole lot but it will be 82-86 degrees.
Current plants: Many Amazon sword, an anubias, other swords (melon I think) and some hairgrass, java moss on driftwood.
Fish- Tank will have for sure: GBR's, some tetra (neon/black neon/cardinal), BN pleco and possibly 1-2 gold nuggets, and I would like to have some discus and a pair or two of angels. I don't think any of these like to nibble on plants, but I'm a plant noob lol.
Please submit your ideas to me along with pics of it either in your tank or from a reference site. Also, if you have anything I like, please let me know how much you would like for whatever it is that I may want. You can PM me with details. Thanks for all of your help.
