hey,

not sure if this is the place to ask but if i am starting out with a 50 gal ...should i get live plants now if i am leaning that way...as i am...or should i start out with plastic?

i am hesitant due to inexperience and wish to do what is better now than learn the hard way

Thanx <><

Live plants can be very easy to take care of if you get the right ones for your tank. You probably will have low lighting, so I would suggest you get low light plants like anubias, java fern, and java moss. Here's a great article to help you decide if you want to try live plants. I hope you do!

No that's good, plant them as soon as the tank is setup and running. Might I suggest crypts, anubias, hornwort also for easy plants to start with.
