wow look at those plants!! I didn't know they could get that big! What kind are they? Do you do anything special for your plants?
is your tank a 5ft or 6ft tank? I'm (painfully slowly) working at getting a 125 set up, and this is wonderful inspiration!
oh yes! I know nothing about plants and I am hoping to be able to grow something, and I am so impressed by how big these things are! My nonexistent knowledge of aquatic plants had me thinking that vallisneria is as big as it got, and those I guess are more vertical than bushy. I have two 3ft current USA LED lights (not their fanciest, just the kind that has blue and white but they're dimmable and programmable. They came with the tank/stand I bought (sold that tank because it was in terrible shape), so I know nothing about them, haven't even tested them.) The tank I'm going to go with is the petsmart kit, I am picking it up next week hopefully, and I know that also comes with lights so I guess I could always use both sets of lights if necessary for plants, but I don't want to get into co2 and a ton of ferts and stuff. I can probably manage root tabs and some liquid fertilizer added at each water change type thing, but nothing more than that haha.
My previous experience planting a tank involved one vallisneria plant, which was completely chowed down within 15 minutes of planting by my "apple snail".
