Re: [Killietalk] I found another nice plant for cold fishrooms/low light
I found that anacharia is the best among some of the aquatic plants I have experimented. I use one flourerscent tube (eg. 40 watts) above 4 10-gallon tanks. Put a timer to turn on the light for about 4-5 hours a day. Anachria is also very cheap. In the summer, I only put a few strands outside and within 2 months they grow like weeds. I also put plant fertilizer to made them healthy (eg. those aquatic plant fertilizer).
I have spent $$ on plants and found anacharia to be the most cost effective.
Now I am experimenting with money plant and bamboo -- real cheap and good. I submerge these plants in the tank and so far so good. You will notice the roots of the plant grow within a week. One thing to note is that some of the money plant leaves will turn yellow and die off if submerge for too long (eg. in my observation, it probably will turn yellow in about 2 months time but not all of the leaves). I just dump away all those yellow leaves. Money plant is excellent as I found that my fish just loves to lay down on those broad leave.
