I want to green up my frontosa tank a bit and my anacharis won't stay down long enough to root. So...I figured a rooted plant would do the trick. The tank is 22" deep and something about that tall would be great. 10-20 rooted plants should do it.

Thin bladed plants would be preferable, but I'm willing to consider jungle val if nothing else comes up. Must come from a clean tank - I don't have the resources to sterilize the plants. (i.e snails are OK, ICH isn't.) :) Thanks!!

p.s. this is where they'll live:

I don't have any spare plants like that either, but I had a questions about the Frontosas. It's a species that I've long admired, but I've never really had the space for a tank big enough.

I noticed that you seem to be successfully keeping about 12 in 125 gal? Is a 30 gal tank too small for one or two?

Also, do they uproot things and dig like most cichlids?
Thanks.

Thanks everyone for the nice observations on my fish! They're doing great in the 125g but will get a 180/225 next year. A 30g even for one just won't cut it as the fish get to 12" and need space. Think of them like oscars in their space needs (min. 55g 4' tank) - but also consider that they're social schoolers and shouldn't be kept alone or even in pairs.

Hope that helps!

Andy

p.s. still looking for TALL val/sag as a backdrop. Thanks!
