New scaping ideas for my tank - which plants? #1
So I set me tank and loved it (it;s my first tank ever) but now fish is in I feel like it is not working...
It is 5gal Fluval Spec V, not too tall, quite long but narrow...

I feel that fish could do with some more vegatation... I am thinking keeping castle ornament but loosing ugly rock cave, which barely any one using and replacing it with some plants on the back, and maybe smallest possible bogwood?. I have attached the picture for you to see. Ideas for plants which will grow more up rather the wide growth??

I have guppies, galaxy rasobras, 1platy
Thank you!

Plants like elodea, hornwort, and vallisneria grow tall so may be what you're looking for.

Thank you! I like the look of Elodea, so I will start with this one.
