Plant suggestions for a 29gal?
I just go a 29 gallon (whoop!) off craigslist; it's clean and finished it's 24 hour test. The substrate will be an aproximately 50/50 mix of typical gravel and the Flourite by Seachem plant substrate (I still had half a bag left from two other tanks). I'll probably end up having to replace the light, as I got it with the tank and I'm not sure what type it is, though the past owner mentioned having algae problems so...we shall see.
I plan to set it up as a growout for my spawn over the summer then keep it as a planted sorority. It will have a landscape (hardscape? It's not a capped tank...) of rock, need to test them first they were left from building our front porch, as well as terra cotta pots as caves.
I LOVE Java Fern and have no trouble with it, so I plan to buy more than that, but what other plants have you had experience with and enjoy in a tank? I will mention, this tank will have a long time with nothing but a few ADFs in it to grow before it's a sorority, and lots of hiding spots are needed, so things can grow in.
