That's a Kyoto plant and it's not a true aquatic plant. It may live for months submerged but will eventually rot and cause an ammonia spike. Also the long stingy plant between the castle and other building, behind the red rock is Mondo grass, also not an aquatic plant.

Your tank is beautiful! I just wanted to mention that those plants may rot so watch your ammonia.

I know the fish stores sell them as aquatic but they really aren't. Some really good aquatic plants that are easy to grow and found in most fish stores are Anubias, Java Moss, Cryptocoryne, Wisteria, Hornwort, and Java Fern, which is the tall plant you have to the left. There are others but that's a good start.

Yes it does look very much Iike bamboo! Bamboo is also semi aquatic, it lives with it's roots submerged but it needs it's leaves out of the water. It can last quite a while completely submerged sometimes, but eventually it will die.

Lol, I was the same way but have done a lot of research the last few months so I know a little bit but still learning a lot. When I first planted my tank I was dupped by the fish store and bought semi aquatic plants because I didn't read the fine print on the package. So I had to start over. At least I know what will work in my tank now.

Same for me, limited selection, although I find my Petsmart has a much better selection than my PETCO. My Petsupermarket has no live plants and even all their fish look sickly but they have the cheapest price for the dog food I buy so I'm all over the place when shopping for all my boys! Lol. PETCO has better looking fish and a bigger selection than PetSmart, but PetSmart has better plants! Lol You should see me at the register when they ask for my "member card" , I have to sometimes ask where I am or try to nonchalantly find something that has the name of the store on it in order to pull out the right card! Anyway, currently I have java fern, Java moss, Anubias, Amazon Sword, and Cryptocoryne Wendtii Green, which is new and I love. I'm so jealous you are getting a 55g. I'm in a little condo so I have no room for that but I love my little 6.6g so much that I got another one last weekend and I'm cycling it now (fish less) because now hubby wants a betta of his own.
