  2. Aquascaping
    Hello, Here's my new hardscape. I'm looking for plant suggestions. I'm pretty set on using rotala rotundofolia, Rotala H'ra in the background. With some Proserpinaca palustris in the middle to break the color with another tint. I might be missing some green though? Otherwise, I'm stuck with...

  9. General Aquarium Plants Discussions
    hi, im thinking of planting my 90gal aquarium but I have a turtle in it; I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts as to which plants I could use in it.

  17. Plant ID
    Hi all, first time posting. A few months ago I dove into the planted tank hobby and purchased a few plants. The "salesman" ended up giving me a couple extra things he had that were looking kind of bad. He said he was probably just going to throw them out. After a couple months one of the...
