Okay so I am looking into these plants and I want to know which would be the best for my tank. I wouldn't mind having them all but obviously if they don't fit they won't work. Also plants that don't need substrate. I have gravel in my tank.
Wanting low care, low light sort of plants that are beginner plants to to speak.
Here is what I have sort of picked.
Java Fern (do they need substrate?)
Here is what I have right now, or plan to get soonish, java fern and moss, whisteria, anubia. Now the question is where can I get it? I have looked at petsmart and petco and not too trusting of their plants. They look a little close to death. Is there a place that can ship them and can at least grantee no snails?
My best plants came out of those little tubes at Petco LOL. I have also ordered plants, and they came full of snails; not that I minded the snails, but... A few of the ordered plants have since passed on, but all my tube plants are alive and healthy.
I got my wisteria from a tube - it was labeled java fern, and I didn't know what it was until long after I put in it the tank. So glad they mislabeled it, because I love it. Started out with 5 little stems that didn't look like much, and they have grown so much, I've had to remove some of them because they completely covered the top of the tank. And, when the leaves break off, they turn into baby plants :)
Once again, agreeing with toad, my cousin got her plants from Petco and most of them are doing great, even though they came with a pond snail and ramhorn snail, they should be easily rid of (though my cousin keeps hers because they're entertaining, or, at least, I think they're entertaining). She got bacopa, anacharis, and wisteria from her local Petco, and only the bacopa died because her snails found it the most delicious...lol
