You can try a java fern and Anubis if you want a low light no maintenance plant. I just bought a few more. I have an Anubis in a tank I can't keep the light on for hours on end and its doing good

I tried an Anubis, it didn't make it. I think because my tank has low wattage led lighting and not flourescent. I tied it to a rock with thread and it just slowly died.

That's odd. Maybe the one in my one gallon will eventually die too. It has 4 LEDs operated by battery. The one with the good led lighting, fluval spec its growing.

Dwarf Sag is a good "tunnel" plant. You can buy Micro Swords on a mat from bamaplants.com for $1.00 per square inch. He will cut to size. I'm getting some on Monday and I can tell you if they're worth it.

Wee Willie's section of my 20 long is 90% carpeted. Sometimes I only know where he is because the carpet is moving and I catch a glimpse of a red fin.

yeah, undergravel filters are a no-no for plants. they pull down the roots and do more harm than good. They also do very little filtration.

None of my friends are into fish so they just politely smile at the picture. I almost die laughing. Glad someone else sees the humor in it! Thanks for commenting on the tank, I've been wondering if I should change it up (besides buying two more tiny plants) the guy is spoiled

Sounds really cool. I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

You're welcome,he's a cutie! I really like the look of your tank,it has inspired me to buy some grass type plants for my little boys,they are very spoilt too,as they should be.
