The pictures would really help, thank you! What would you recommend? I just need something that's low maintenance like wisteria.
Here's my tanks. Everything I have is pretty low maintenance. I trim some of them like the Anacharis, but so far haven't had to trim anything else. I do use root tabs but only add them according to the directions on the package.
First picture is the 10 gal, all sand substrate, nothing special about the light, sand substrate. I have 3 artificial silk plants in the tank, the rest are live. Plants are 2 types of crypt, repens, java fern, anubia coin, water wisteria, and ruffled amazon that refuses to do well.
2nd picture is the 5 gallon. Sand under the plants, black gravel is eco complete (crypts didn't like it), light is a Finnex Stingray. I use root tabs. All the plants are live. Plants are crypts, anubia nana, anubia coin, moss ball, water wisteria, and anacharis.
3rd picture is my 3 gallon. Gravel substrate. Only light is from the window, no fertilizer is used. All live plants. Plants are anacharis, and I think guppy grass.
4th picture is my 2.5 gallon. Gravel substrate, cheap picotope light (I need a better light), no fertilizer used. 1 artificial silk plant, the rest are live. Plants are anubia coin, anancharis and what I think is guppy grass. I'm having the hardest time growing anything in this tank and I suspect it is because the light if I put the mesh top on is lower then low, working on getting a better light for the tank, but for now I've lowered the water in it and leave the mesh top off.
