    Hi All,

    Well as predicted, my Severums are slowly but surely destroying my plants in my tank.
    I find a tank without a bit of greenery a bit stark, so am considering going the plastic plant route.

    What is the most realistic brand in the UK?

    Thanks
    Squidward

    If you do go fake, look for silk plants. They look a lot more realistic. I have a few and look pretty decent.


    Thanks,

    mike,
    There is Anubias and Java fern in the foreground. The Sevs do leave them alone.
    I am looking for something taller at the back of the tank.

    Yanks5,
    Thanks, I will look into that

    Yanks gave you good advice. Look for Silk plants. Also be careful not  to get plants with limestone bases, because the bases can "dissolve" in the water drastically increasing your pH
