Ok so in the future, I will be starting a 40 gallon shrimp and mystery snail tank! I’ve never had live plants (besides a marimo moss ball) so this is all new to me. I will probably have the substrate below. Let me know if there are any better options but I want a substrate that isn’t active and I won’t have to change out and this was the best option I could find. Next, on to the plants! What are some (maybe about 3-6 options) super easy low tech plants that can all go together (have the same requirements)? I won’t have a co 2 system. Preferably some that are in different places in the tank (so the shrimp and snails have lots of hiding space). Whatever plants you tell me, what’s some good lighting for them? If possible, not super expensive and maybe on Amazon. Also, for whichever plants are listed, what’s a good fertilizer for them? I’m not sure if root tabs or liquid or both will be better for whatever plants I choose. I’m so sorry that this was so long so thank you in advance for whoever takes the time to help me on this tank! I really want this to work!
