Re: Planted Rift Valley Tanks

Keeping plants in an east African cichlid tank *is* a challenge :)  But, as
you've found, it can be done.

In my Tanganyikan tank (pH 7.8-8.2, ~280 ppm) I have Java fern and Bolbitis. 
All are thriving and the leleupis like to get in among the leaves of the Java
fern and hang out.
