Throw some floating plants like frogbit in there and maybe some java fern is pretty easy. You could plant some dwarf sag. It's definitely looking pretty bare in there.
I actually picked up a bag of mixed floaters from my local aquarium shop. There’s some big ones in there too it was pretty sick.
I’ve also left some anubias floating, not really a floating plant but it can be grown that way.
I did have three Java fern in there but I moved them to different tanks so I would have some plants in my fry growouts. I’m thinking maybe a driftwood bonsai???? I just want it to be aesthetically pleasing.


I added kuhli loach to this tank yesterday as well and they seem to be liking all the holes in the lava rock, I have already observed some eel like behavior between them and that rock.
But this tank is fairly well stocked and all the fish do a fairly good job of hiding, so that’s really not much of an issue.

The big one is water lettuce, Pistia stratiotes. The smaller similar looking plants are the same plant, just not as well grown yet.

The really tiny ones look like duckweed.


Edit - betta4ever! beat me to it :lol:

I gotta say the aquarium store guy is definitely a cool dude, he put three random scoops from three random tanks, and then he went looking (took him a couple minutes) and he stuck the biggest one he had in there. I’m pretty pleased I was able to seed 4 tanks.

I was pretty sure I had some duckweed, but part of me was holding back thinking it might be something else very similar in size.
That’s cool tho cus I have ducks I might skim some of that stuff off the top of the tanks once it grows in and see if they’ll eat it.
