    Never too many plants.

    Really? I don't think that at all.
    There are people who completely cover the bottom with plants to the point you can barely see the substrate. You can even add more if you want to!

    Alright, thanks :)

    I added alot of plants so my fish were more comfortable and feeling at their natural enviroment.

    I think it looks good. Not too many at all.

    Not too many, it looks good!

    Google "dutch aquascape" if you really want to see a ton of plants.

    are those real or fake plants if you don't mind me asking?
  8. VortexedValued MemberMember

    Fake ones.

    Welll any fake plants is probably too many. But if they were real I'd just call that lightly planted.

    Need more plants! Should try some real though. Some good low light ones could be awesome.

    Fake plants are work fine but try putting in some real ones if you get the chance! There are plenty of low tech (and low cost!) plants like anubias, hair grass and java ferns that will help maintain a balanced tank and you could still keep around your plastic plants for solid hiding areas as well.

    It looks good to me.
  13. KeeperOfASilentWorldWell Known MemberMember

    Nope! It looks perfect! :)
  14. FishpunsValued MemberMember

    I'd add more plants lol. It looks perfect as is though:)

    Fish love plants, it kind of counts as both hiding space and swimming space for them. It's hard to add too many.

    I'm afraid of what I might see if I Google that.

    You will see WONDERFUL AQUASCAPES!!!!

    Plus, over time the plants can pay for the hobby. Or at least that is what I am seeing as probable. At least on cash to cash side...

    As long as you like it, it's not too many! I like jungle tanks myself! It looks great!
  18. -Mak-Fishlore VIPMember

    Do it! They're full of plants but not at all in a messy way, more like a beautiful garden.
  19. AngelTheGypsyFishlore VIPMember
