Looking to plant a 5.5!

Hey all! I've been busy with life and it seems my 5.5 has finished cycling, and I want to start putting plants into it. I understand duckweed, java moss and java fern are one of the easiest to grow and to plant a tank with. I would love any suggestions and if anyone has any they could spare (I would pay shipping) please let me know!

I wish I had some to offer but my plants are just starting to take off and produce.

Good luck!

My only suggestion is don't deal with PetSmart if you can avoid it. They sell overpriced garbage. I read the Wysteria grow like weeds. I picked one up this weekend, got it home,opened it up and had stalks that are already falling apart. Read Mo's Sticky about plants... he/she did a great job on it.

Huh, I got a few Anubias and my regular Java Fern from PetSmart and they're all growing like weeds. I did get all of them on sale, plus I was picky about getting the healthiest plants available.

I do like the sticky that Mo put together, it's very helpful.

Well, yeah I'm a lil biased and that reminds me... make sure they're actually AQUATIC plants. I also got burned by them buying semi-aquatic plants. The ol' White and Gold Ribbon (lucky Bamboo) has struck others on here.
