sterilise it before adding into your tank, i seem many people get their place from the pond/reservoir/drain to add into their tank

No wonder my ferns never seems to survive and yet I kept reading they are very hardy. Zzz




Argh... My cherries aren't growing unless between Nov to feb. But now my population almost decimated. maybe I'll won't top up anymore. Chiller too expansive and high running cost.
Most ferns, moss and some aquatic plants dont do well when water temp is above 30 degree Celsius.

If you are planning to keep a tank without fan or cooling, then pick plants that are higher heat tolerant.

Shrimps thrive with regular water change and less than 30 degrees temp. I think shrimps lifespan are 3 months. Of course they have longer life at cooler temp. Ideally about 25 or slightly lower but 27 is fine too. Nothing more than 31.

In singapore, water temp can sometimes climb to 31 or even 32 and stay like this for a few days. The shrimps will get wiped out this way. So put your tank in a cooler corner of the house away from sun to avoid heating up during the day. Avoid having too much equipment like pump or cfl light that also add heat to tank.

If you are planting to keep a small tank without fan or cooling, then pick plants that are higher heat tolerant.

What are some of the low lying plants which are more heat tolerant and no need soil?

Bare bottom tank or still have inert substrate like sand or the like?

Do you plant the java fern tied together with the piece of driftwood?

Or cut the thread and plant each?

Here's a photo of mine

best to keep the plant as per the pic. baby plants will grow out from the old leaves and you can pluck them out and tie a bunch on a wood or rock then.

Then i suggest Cryptocoryne wentii green or some plants from cryptocoryne family.

They are asian plant that are found near river banks. So already adapted to our climate and dont really need rich substrate. They also dont grow tall since they are rosette plant. Just nice for you. They are easy plant for beginners too. But dont keep them in high pH water.

A pic for your reference.

At the back. Near bagging counter, hanging at the side where aunty put goldfish.

The plant in the pic is not java fern. Green spot is common. Use nerite snails. Maybe too much light or nutrients. I mainly have them on glass but i dont really care, cause not alot.

Not the crypt i recommend. It can even be floated.

This kind of plants likely to kena algae, those grey hairy type. Yamato shrimps basically take care of that.

Again I say, the tank must achieve balance. You see that japanese vid, jungle also can become beautiful.
