    Does anyone know of some larger low light plants that will do ok in cooler water?
    My dad just fixed his pond and I took a bunch of hornwort out of my tanks for the goldfish but I think they need more things to look at.
    I also think I will end up shoving the plants back into my tanks during the winter (unless they can withstand near freezing)
    The pond id only about a foot deep

    I have lilies, elodea and moss in my goldfish ponds. For an indoor tank java fern is great.

    Goldie's will tear up the moss quickly... mine also think hornwort is a tasty snack. They do best with anubias and Java ferns. I also have anacharis, ludwigia repens, and val gigantea with them. Ludwigia they leave alone, val they munch on but it grows so quickly they are actually helping me, anacharis they will snack on from time to time, but is usually left alone.

    Try Parrot's Feather if it's legal in your state.
