Hello TF members I've recently gone out from planted tanks into African cichlids. It's good and bad at the same time.
Good: less maintenance, African cichlids are easier to breed and sell, does well with the naturally hard water in Lathrop.
Bad: less plant options because of high ph(7.5 -8) and hard water, can't keep the more cooler looking species of plants.
If I want to have a soft water sp. I usually just put it in my 2.5 gal betta bow.(No space for bigger plants)
Thinking about the loss of option plant-wise made me think "I wonder what people like...". That lead to this
Please post the sp.s you like and why! Please no "I like plastic plants because ...."; lets try to keep this a live plant thread.
I'll post my favorite(s) later when this thread gets posts. For now, let's have fun talking about our favorite live plant sp.s!
