    Hello all, I have a 55 gallon community tank that I am trying to fill. I will have a few types of schooling fish. I need plants tho. I have one sword, one Anubias, one Java fern, a few bulbs from Petsmart. I am dossing with all the Seachem stuff according to directions. It is working but slow. I need some easy good small plants for the foreground. Any suggestions?

    how are your plants planted? Swords should be in substrate and benefit from root tabs. They're root feeders. Anubias and java ferns should be attached to wood, rock etc because of the rizome. If you already know this stuff.. Sorry. Just trying to help :p dwarf saggitaria i think is a good choice. I have some. It spreads its roots around to propogate.
