Hi all! I'm hoping you plant people can help me out, as talking to the folks at my local store can only get me so far.
I want to add some not-so-common plants to a few of my tanks. All of my tanks are low light, low-tech, heavily planted or in the process of being planted. One of the tanks I need to add to has livebearing fish in it, and they like to nibble on the soft parts of the plants. The other is a betta rubra tank, and they never bother the plants at all. They much prefer meaty foods
So far, the most unusual plant I have is scarlet temple (sold as some other plant that's a terrestrial flower) or possibly my umbrella plants. I don't even know if those guys can grow underwater but I suppose I'll find out.
The livebearer tank substrate is potting soil and gravel, the rubra tank is flourite and sand cap. Both seem suited well enough to heavy rooting plants, so those are in, as well as any floating plants, tie to driftwood plants, etc
Anyway, if anyone could help me out with some interesting plants that might suit these tanks, please do! I'm also interested in finding some unique floaters!
