    So my platy and molly gave birth a day apart to about 30 fry. Well i saved about 30 of them they probably ate some. Anyway i have them separate in their own little tank but they are getting a bit overcrowded so im going to move the bigger ones into the bigger tank with the other fish. I just need some plants that offer good cover and should i get floating or sinking ones? Would driftwood work too? Thanks.

    driftwood might lower ph + if this tank is only a holding tank for fry then its best not to use driftwood. but i agree with java fern. the best is probably java moss and guppy grass.

    I second Guppy Grass. The stuff takes over the tank though.
