I have some good size java ferns in the back of my 10g. As well as rotala indica. For your size tanks I'd avoid plants that get too incredibly big. It will make for a pain to trim all the time.
I like the java ferns because while big, they grow pretty slow.
I agree with java fern or maybe some crypt green or red
Ok. Thanks! I'll look in to those. How do you guys make sure ur plants don't have hitchhikers?Vals

Ok. I just don't want to be over run with them.I don't lol. The little bladder or pond snails that sometimes hitchhike, I actually want those. A lot of people for some reason don't like them but i find they are really beneficial in cleaning up and eating algea, uneaten food etc.
Cool! I like those! They sorta look like bamboo. How do you make sure there aren't hitchhikers?Hygrophilia, you can nip it off and start new ones. I let the cuttings float for a week till they have some roots which only seems to take 4-5 days. This 10 gal tank is just for rearing plants.. good in the back ground, you will never have to buy Hygro again and they will grow as tall as you let them! Hygrophilia on the right, Cryptocoryne Undulata on the left. Feed with root tabs. Hygrophila 'Siamensis 53B' - Tropica Aquarium Plants
Ok. Thanks a lot!1 ml bleach to 1 litre water. 30 secs to 1 minute, not more. Then put in declorinated water to rinse. Handpick snails if you see them, eggs can be seen too. I often leave my new plants in dechlorinated water for a few days to a week to see if anything else comes off them before moving them.
