Reason: I have a planted sorority tank, and I'd like a little more variety of plants in my tank.

Reason: I am dying to make an NPT in my sorority tank and dont have enough different species of plants...I'm putting all my extra money towards getting the right kind of soil and sand for substrate so I dont have extra for plants at the moment.

I have algae right now actually I need to get a snail to eat it off of my plants. My girls just eat any ghost shrimp I get. The pic is Catalina eating poor little Patrick Swayze or what was left of him :(

Reason - There is a male in my tank 0.o what could be a better reason then that?? Ok, seriously - the red things in the front didnt do so well so I have bald spots in the tank. And the bigger poofy rust colred foxtail like plant seems to like floating better then the sand. So I have alot of surface cover but not so much ground cover anymore. Maybe I should replant them with a root tab nearby?

Reason: I love the look of planted tanks and I know how much healthier for them.
My ten gallon is a NPT and the picture I have is before I spread out the stalks out. if you would like
updated picture I can provide. I'd LOVE different types being as I live in a small town our fish stores
Do not have anything other then what you see there and swords,

updated list
