Thanks for all your advice! I am no plant expert at all. I bought the driftwood with the baby tears on it already, from a local fish store, and it slowly died in my tank... :/ lol... Oh well. Sorry. I did nothing to save it.

Was it the UK company on ebay, Gizmo? I was looking at those too, but I wasn't sure if I'd have to pay more to get them to Canada from the UK. Have you received them yet? If so, did you have to pay anything extra?

Not your fault. If you would like, I can point you to some planted tank forums to help you out some more.

If you don't mind, could you point me to some planted tank forums?

I finally got the new plants into Artemis's 5 gallon. I really want to remove the plastic plant (on the left) and replace it with a tall live plant but i haven't found anything that takes my fancy yet. Plus, my girl has finally unclamped her fins and has perked up, i think she likes all the new plants.

No problem. I will send you a PM with the sites in it. And as far as tall plants go, may I suggest a cryptocorn of some sort. There are all shapes, sizes, and colors. You might find something in that group you like.

I gave Tony a 5 gallon tank to share with an ADF. Here is a picture of the setup right now;

Unfortunately, I am pretty sure it is about to be infested with Cyanobacteria again. I just can't get rid of that stuff.

Sazzer's future new home. (near near near future)
Yes I know it needs more plants am working on it, but I made sure he's got a few places he can hide in the mean time.

the two tanks we have are essentially the same, with a few differences in decoration. I don't have a heater or a filter, nor do I have live plants, I'm in TX and the tanks stay warm, and I've never had an issue with the health of my fish, knock on wood! I hope to some day move them into a bigger aquarium (divided, of course) and chuck the small tanks! (I have more pictures on my profile, under the albums, of my bettas!)
