Hello,

I need some assistance.

I started out my planted tank with faster growing plants in order to establish the tank and prevent an algae outbreak. Well, it seems to have worked - a little too well in fact. Now, I'm looking to move out the faster growing plants and replace them with slow/medium growing alternatives. Could someone please list some of the more common slow/medium grow plants; particularly, the stem/bunch variety?

Thanks

Often times one person's slow growers are another one's weeds. But here's a few slower ones:

Proserpinaca palustris
Blyxa aubertii
Blyxa japonica
Limnophila aromatica
Amania 'bonsai' type
Cyperus helferi
Crypts
Anubias

Look through the plantfinder. You should be able to get lots of info on this there.
