This is the other fish tank and would like to know what plant can I tie to the decorations? Thanks

Hey thanks for replying one is a 40 breeder with a marineland natural daylight at 15w. I have to uprade to a bigger light fixture. The other is a 29 gallon with a GE 6500k daylight at 20w.

You could get by with floating plants like Hornwort or Cabomba and save your money. Otherwise, you'll need a better light.

I have the money now, what lighting do you suggest? I was just using those lights because they came with the tanks. That's the reason my 3 live plants I have in it aint doing too well now that I'm thinking about it
