Alright, I just got a brand spankin' new 10 gallon. By time I am done with it, I would enjoy it for it be fully planted! It will have sand as main substrate, then there will be a rise/"hill" where those compact pebble type substrate will be.
I am starting with anacharis. Currently it shall be floated, later on, I will most likely place it into the substrate. One plant down!
Alright, next is baby tears. I find it to have such a peaceful look. Does anybody know where to find these?? Also, do you guys think it would look good draped over a terra cotta pot?? If not, should I place something on the sand for it to appear it is growing on the sand? OR, should I simply use moss? Keep in mind, this is a MAN'S tank! ;)
I would like to get some val, too. So basically I think I am aiming for a terra cotta pot covered in either baby tears or moss, then val, anacharis, and something else surrounding the pot. Crypts? Swords? What do you guys think?? Suggestions much appreciated!
On a last note, does anyone know what this plant is?
(Not the dark green "grass" one, the light green plant!)
It is THRIVING at my PetCo and is $3. Like, within a week it has over doubled in size. It is thick, gorgeous, and I would kill for it to be in my tank. I don't really know what it is, though. And there was a gorgeous potted plant in there that I Googled searched and it wasn't aquatic. O.o So I am skeptical until any of you can confirm!!
