Hi everyone,

Gonna make a quick post to show you my new live plants, not sure if this is the right section for it but I'd love for any/all advice...

Finally found a LFS in my area that carries live FRESHWATER plants...seems to be a rarity where I live. Hmp. But found one and got a couple thin leaf java ferns (I believe thats what they were called...could be mistaken). To start off my first live planted tank! Seemed fitting to go to the fish store today considering the roads are basically ponds now...3''+ of rain these past two days. But anyway, here is my current set up, 50G corner pent tank, the ferns I attached to the driftwood with fishing line. Fish guy gave me some organic carbon to use...pour in a capful once a week. Probably going to move my air stone to the back later on or put my bubble wall back in maybe, but right now my cat needs some attention so I have to take a break. Excuse the swimming pigs in the photos ;) They've left the plants alone so far, crossing my fingers!

Sooooooooo what do you think?? ;)

I love your tank :) what is the shape? hexagon? and the ferns look great :) as do your fish :) :)

I have never had any luck with any of the ferns so hopefully you will do better than me ;)

It's a corner hex, I had a hex before but my fatties needed more space lol! Thank you!!

That's a great plant! I want some of those, but they are kinda expensive online. Great choice and they look great as well. :)

Thank you very much I was lucky, got them all for about $8. Thanks to my LFS. :)

@tithra That's what I'm hoping to do! The piece of wood is perfect size to be the centerpiece while still leaving plenty of space for them to swim.
