Pond tank.

Postby aravind90chan » Thu Mar 07, 2019 12:05 am

I am planning to use a shallow frag tank to create a pond tank setup with emersed and submerged plants.
It will be low tech (no CO2, LED flood light 6500K) with ADA/Tropica soil.
Currently, am planning to have hornwort, pennywort, umbrella palm, buce, ludwigia.
Any suggestions on plants that will go well in this set up?

Would you like a frog for it? :-P

Spiranthes odorata and "dwarf onion" plants, which I think are actually rain lilies.

haha. It will not have a lid and so no on the frog :) .
Great. Are there good stores in the DC area for aquarium plants? I know congressional aquarium has a good collection.

GWAPA is the best course of plants, but you may check out House of Tropicals.

We have a mostly plant auction every month at the meeting. But if you are looking for something specific, you can always post it. The members have a ton of different types of plants.
