Hehe, we unfortunately have so many really strict laws on plants and the picking of even wild flowers that its rather difficult to do it. Plus the closest river to me is rather tiny and not much growing in it. I've learnt to appreciate our plants and wildlife - especially since I live in the Western Cape and we have the fynbos varieties such as the Protea that most people know. But its all normal plants, I am part of a forum here and we are waiting hear on a few new bylaws that are getting passed, making things even harder but then again its all for the preservation of the natural habitat's that we have.
There you can see what ive managed to do with my planted tank. Altho I keep mainly live plants even with my boys 5gallon tank, they dont have much right now and I need to get some seachem excel to boost the CO2 in the tank to help the java moss grow. The planted one is going to be the home for my girls once they get here from a "local" breeder (he lives about 100km from me so hes not that local :P)
