    Crypts are very good plants for your tank.  Do some research on , and see if your fish store can order you the plants you are interested in.

    Oh goodness yes! I got rid of my Java Moss because I couldn't keep it contained and I am still (3 months later) finding strands of it on everything when I change water and clean the tank and vacuum the gravel. It is pretty but when the fish (especially those with long fins) swim past it, it goes EVERYWHERE.

    I got some plants called "Pellia" (they are beautiful) but they have no roots. They are heavier thaan water so they do sink, but I am wondering, How do I keep them from being swished around when the fish travel over them. They move very easily. I want to be able to use them somewhere in the aquarium but right now they are in a tank all by themselves besause they were so fragile when they got here (they came from Singapore).

    I have been giving them Iron, Vitamins, and Plant Food to kind to hefty them up a little. (Red Sea)
