PostSubject: Aquarium Plants suited for plecos?   Fri Feb 03, 2012 12:20 am

Hello am wondering if anyone could suggest some species of aquarium plants for a strictly pleco tank, all of them are BN's and two are Clowns.
I currently have a two baby amazon swords and a small cabomba, but have a little extra funds just especially put aside for them and would like to give them a planted oasis!
Any suggestions would be appreciated, comments and no-no plants for plecos too please.

they are all fine. Bristlenose do not eat plants like other plecos.

I had blue stricta, java fern, swords, moss, lotus, val, HC, hair grass and a few others in my planted tank. though, for some of those you are looking at high light and even CO2 injection

Hi,I have anubias they are very hardy and easy and grow lovely all on their own.I attach mine to wood with an elastic band or two until they have a real good hold.

I appreciate it Bristlenoses, I was wondering about anubias, but wasn't sure if they'd be good for Bn's or not. Thank you! Smile
