What plants are good with low light, can take lots of misting and come from south america?
I thought about that as I am a tropical fish keeper also. I just love exotic tropical fish. Currently own two Electric Eels.Consider low light aquatic plant in a system that will be wet. I have aquatic planted vivarium that are misted heavier then most vivs. However most of my plants are from South East Asia and not south America. Almost all of my fish are South or Central American though
Right now one is 20 inches in size 75 gallon tank and a the other is 13 inches in 30 gallon tank for now. I am also doing heavy misting I need the plants to cope with that misting. I am just getting into dart frogs.Nice! Those things get massive! How big is the tank?
Yeah Currently I am growing 2 species of Hygro, chain sword, anubias, multiple crypt species, HC, Sagittaria, glosso, and many others in my vivariums. I am also growing 5 species of aquatic mosses in my vivariums!
I can list specific species names if you are interested in any of these.
Its true about the water changes I currently have 7 aquariums, a panther chameleon, two tortoises, python and now the dart frogs.Same! I took down 8 aquariums to make room for dart frogs. I am about 6 months into vivariums and only 2 months into frogs now. I like it because there is less water changes, and I still get to see nice, lush tanks that look natural. I still have 12 aquariums setup though. I have 2 vivariums and I have plans for 6 more. I also have plans for an indoor pond/riparium style feeder tub.
So are you doing a biotype and only doing South American plants? I totally dig biotypes, but there are some seriously awesome aquatic plants form South East Asia. Crypts and ground cover type plants being my favorite at the moment.
Staurogyne Repens is one of my favorite plants from SA and it is naturally found growing in really wet spots of the amazon. I currently have it growing in my planted tank, but plant to transfer some once it establishes better.
