    Hi My name is Gert. I'm from Boksburg. I am busy helping my son (15) set up his 1st tropical tank.

    We have a total of 3 tanks. 1 coldwater, with goldfish, comets etc. 1 small tank that will be used to raise small fish and a bigger tank.

    We don't have any plants in any of our tanks yet........ Need help deciding if we can put plants in, what types of plans, keeping it etc.

    Any help, suggestions.......

    :welc to the forum Gert

    For plants, I'll recommend some Ludgwia Repens, Hygrophilla Difformis, Vallesneria....they are gr8 when starting out as they are easy to grow and maintain. Some Java Fern will also be nice.

    Welkom Piet! Feel free to ask questions about fish and plants, and always remember the other useful site: www.fishforum.co.za

    I like the plants specified by Solex69, google them, and feel free to PM me for questions about plants, filters and lights

    Welcome to APSA, Gert.
    Ek sien jy was slim om jouself eerder SlimPiet te noem!

    Gert.
