i finally have my tank cycled and things are looking good.

i want to add some real plants that are easy for a beginner. i do have hornwort but need ideas for good plants for fry to hide in. something that can float at the top and something for the buttom. i have gravel at the bottom. it's a 38 gallon hex.

thanks.

thanks for the links. lots of great information! i have a dozen fry i want to release into the community tank but they need more plants to hide in. going to set up a new small tank but it'll take a bit of time before it's cycled and ready for them.

I will quite often use wisteria as well, it can be left floating and does fine, but also allows alot of room for movement within the plants. The water lettuce is also a really cool floating plant, and Ken is right the roots are a nice feature that does allow for hiding of smaller fry.

Both are easy plants to keep and will thrive in about ANY condition.
