Have you guys got any sugestions on a plant that is easy to care for and does not mind the high light levels of my tank?
I leave the tank light on from 5am to 10pm, that is when i leave for school and return home at night. I haven't the slightest idea what type of light it is, it came with the tank and i found it on the side of the road.
The tank is a 29 gallon tall tank with a gravel bottom, i hate gravle but it is all that i have besides red clay. it also has live rock.
Here is a pic of the tank...
The white rocks are the live rock and unfortuanitly make the water slightly hard. So i do once weekly water changes to keep the pH away from the 8 marker.
I was thinking about taking a moss ball and taking it apart. Then laying the strands on the bottom. This is because i heard that it can form a natural carpet. Then getting 3 more to just hang out in there. I am going to make a plant box to hang in the back, thinking of lucky bamboo for there. The some sort of large floating plant to place on the top of the water.
If this is not a good plan, please tell me a good one to do instead. I would like to not pay too much money, even so much as collecting plants from our ponds. So cheap plants are good plants. But i don't mind spending money. Thank you!
