    I bought a few plants in pots for my new tank which isnt set up so ive left them in the pots until my bigger tank is set up.. They have some foam around the roots inside pots when it comes to planting them should i remove the foam stuff?? Ill try and get a picture of what im talking about..

    Also need some plant names that can go at the front of my tank in low tech tank.

    Yes you should remove that foam. It's there to keep the roots established. Just remove the wool, and plant the plant in the substrate :)

    Okay sounds good. The plant will be fine potted in the wool until you get some more substrate to plant the plant.

    If you want some plants for the front of the tank, try checking out dwarf sag :)

    Actually, anubias are very slow growing so they wont be "huge" per se... another one you can try that is easy to grow for foreground is Cyperus Helferi.
