So I want my project for Christmas to be switching over to live plants with my tanks. One is a twenty gallon and one is a ten. The twenty is divided into three sections, the ten is divided into two.
I have an idea of what I want it to look like. The plants would be low-moderate light plants. I'd like there to be a continuity in the tank that passes through the dividers. Like it looks like one tank and not two or three separate sections.
I want to have frogbit floating on top. I'll probably use java moss on various caves and this awesome square vase I have. I'm wondering about a good middle ground/ background plant... Planted or floating doesn't really matter. I'd probably be using sand as a substrate if they have to be planted. Maybe organic soil with a sand layer to top it off. Which of those two is better?
I'm sure I have more questions and I probably will as these ones get answered. I've been reading the plants sticky... Reading various other things online, too. I just want to get this down in game-plan format so I know how to spend my money when I actually set this in motion and I know how long it will take me to complete this. Thank you, everyone for all your advice beforehand!
