    my tank is a 60 gallon that's 4 foot long and 25 inches tall in Dimensions

    both my filters are aqua clear the both are for 70 gallon tanks so i have a 60 gallon tank with a filter made for 140 gallon tank

    so tell me what you guys think and any ideas as what plants to get im keeping Gouramis bettas and Cory Cats and one question if any one can help i put the sand that was all ready in the tank on top but i really don't like it well it be ok to vacuum as much as i can when i do my water changes or if taking it out disturb any thing in the tank

    Hi,

    Sounds like fun! What kind of Gouramis are you keeping? I hope you realize you can't keep Gouramis and Bettas together. They just don't mix.

    Some great plants would be Amazon Swords, Banana Plants, Vallisneria, Bacopa, and Lilies.

    Water Wisteria is another great fast growing stem plant. Bacopa as mentioned would be good too as its a fast growing stem plant. I've got Bacopa Australis. Love it! Dwarf Hairgrass would be a good foreground plant.
