    I have a 10 gallon tank, and want to stick it with live plants. I have 7 plastic ones, and am planning on ordering from Trinsfish.com. What kind of plant will grow quickly and cover a lot of ground? Thank you. [​IMG]

    I hope you don't plan on keeping those fish in that 10 gallon tank
    Also, what kind of plants are you looking for? Ones that are short, or ones that are tall?

    These are in a 50. I just wanted to attach a picture. In my 10 I have a Betta and 2 mollies, but they're getting treated for fungus.

    I wanted a mixture of height.

    A 10g is far too small for mollies

    Maybe some Jungle val, S. repens, Windtii, and/or Banana plants?

    I think they meant they are just keeping the mollies in the 10g to be treated.

    Yeah, a Molly needs a 29g. Can't help with plants but am following(need help with plants myself.).

    Oh, well then I agree. Mollies are not suitable for a 10g tank

    I rescued the two mollies, and just don't have suitable room for them, or the money to buy a larger tank. I'm saving up, but haven't gotten there yet.

    I'd rehome them in the meantime then. They're probably stressing your betta out.

    What about hornwort and anacharis? Both are fast growing and produce lots of cover.

    I'm house sitting for my neighbor. She said she'd take the mollies. My Betta passed away late last night and I know have an empty 10 gal. I stopped at petco and got a female crow tail, and a dwarf frog to put in there. I'm going to keep that tank with just those two.

    If she gets along with the 1 frog I would get at least 2 more, they enjoy friends

    It's not a good idea to keep fish with ADFs. Not only do frogs not see well and get out competed for food, but the frogs can attack the fish, mistaking them for something they can eat.
