Back from the store and I have a few purchases ^^ Two anubias for each side of the tank, some cabomba to float, and a plant I thought was a java fern but..I doubt it now looking at pictures of them. I'll take a picture of it tomorrow to see if anyone can identify it.
Is there any special way I should float the cabomba, or just plop it down in the water? I put the ends of a couple in the gravel, and poked the stem of another through the divider to keep it in place, but i'm not really sure if I should do this or not. I almost bought a Cryptocoryne, but it was very small and the idea of it being destroyed if I accidentally disturbed the roots was too intimidating. Maybe if it was a better looking specimen I would've given in, but it really was very..tiny. And sort of sad looking :<
I think I will continue to look for frogbit or dwarf water lettuce online..I just love the leafy top floater look, though I am loving the cabomba (wow, just can't seem to spell this right without going back and checking every other letter, lol. I keep typing it as: comba, camboba, combaba, etc. One of those words my brain won't compute @.@). If moss is a bad idea I may give up on the carpet idea, unless I can find a 'grassy' plant carpet instead. Maybe clover or dwarf pennywort (not those really look grassy, but they are pretty >> <<)? If any of these outgrow the tank I have multiple other places to put parts of them in, so i'm not really worried about that, but does anyone have experience with them?
