Live Plants

I ordered some live Java fern and water trumpets off e-bay...the trumpets are growing back their leaves already :D

I will update as they grow...

The ferns are a little banged up from shipping. This is my firt attempt at live plants :D

Keep the fern's rhyzome above the substrate. Also get some leaf pro stuff from API (same makers of Stress Coat and Stress Zyme) they are great. I don't know much about Co2 though but I heard it is recomended.

Thanks for the advice! I picked plants that are all super easy, I don't even need special lighting so it seems. I also just put in some tabs I got from Big Al's to help them grow.
