    Do you want plants from specific areas that go together or just plants that look good together with similar water parameters?

    In a big tank you want big plants – how about some crinum thianum, Ech. Bleheri, ech Cordifolius a big anubias barteri with some ech tennelus in the foreground. Sagitaria subulata or ech. quadricostatus in the mid ground. Maybe a couple of focal points – Crinum calamistratum and/or Ech. Rubin ( a single ech. rubin set apart from other big plants looks ace in big aqauriums).

    Loads of crypts as well that would look good. I find that large clumps of only three or four type of plant with a focal plant (or two) and some bog wood works better than small clumps of loads of different types of plant.

    oh and what fish are you putting in there – may make a differnece to plant choice.

    Eh????????That all sounds good but i havent a clue to what type of plant you are refering to i will have to look up each one individual unless you can tell me where to find pictures and names together.

    The tank has a slate rock area shaped into a semi circle hide out place,centre is marble and the other side is i think called sand rock. Dont want bogwood.

    The fish is a mix of everything really community tank, nothing specific,tetras,barbs,sharks,cats but will need to add more when its ready.
