Hi everyone,

I'm setting up a 40 Breeder Aquarium at the front office of my school. The tank is already up with water. I used a 40 lb of Eco-Complete, a Nicrew ClassicLed Plus (30"-36"), a Penguin 350B (super cheap $20), I added 2 foam blocks of Poret from SwissTropical to the Penguin (the filter has room for extra media). I was planning of using a 3D background but was too expensive so end up using a printed background like a photo. Looks OK. If you want to see pictures and/or help set this tank click the following link to see the original post - I don't want to spam here ).

The reason I'm posting this here is because I need some plants. The plants needs to be bullet proof because the tank will be maintain by our office manager and she is new to the hobby. I made a list of plants that are suppose to be hard to kill.

I would love to host one meeting on our school to get this tank aquascape by the pros. If its possible feel free to let me know. I already mentioned it to the principal and she likes the idea. In the meantime I want to put something in the tank. They grew tire of seeing the tank bare. Here is the list of plants I found to be sort of bulletproof. If any of you attending the meeting has trims please bring them to the meeting. Thanks.
