Im looking to turn my tank to almost completley natural. Atm, I have a dinky java fern (its like an inch and a half tall wth.) and two very small anubias, again, wth. I have anacharis, but its dwindling.
Ive been looking to get new plants, but Im not into the most common varieties. Like, Im not a fan of wisteria, bacopa (wont work for me), dont have the right substrate for crypts or swords and really like rooted plants <3
Ive been looking at these plants, but am having issue with finding straight info on its needs. Help? <3
~I have two five gallons, though over the summer will be consolidated into one tank.
~Each tank has a 10w tubular florescent bulb, max wattage I can get Dx
~Marbles as a substrate (shallow)
~Filtered/baffled, lost the cycles
~Temps are 78-80 without heaters atm (my room is hot D:<)
~I have drift wood to attach to, ideally! :D
~I also have large lake rocks that could have rooted things :D
~I supplement nutrients with Tetra floura pride and an occasional shot of magnesium via epsom salt.
I dont like messy plants (ex. hornwort/shedding plants...RAGE!!!!) or plants that need more care than I can give.
Would these work in my tank/how are they as tank plants?
-Sagittaria subulata, "dwarf sagittaria"...
It becomes a carpet, but could it live in marbles? Its so cuutte..
, its cousin? I cant find info at all, ugh! I like it, though.
-Nymphoides aquatica, Banana plants..
If it can grow in marbles, I want this so bad! Ive read it can be hurt by snails...I have a nerite, who wont eat it. Is there something about snails thats not good for them? Id put it either without the snail or on the other side of the divider.
-Hygrophila Corymbosa "Giant/narrow hygro"..will it be ok in my marbles? Can it root?
Any thoughts? Im going to shoot them an email, too.
