lol, don't know the names of the plants. Something low growing with really big oval leaves and sturdy stalks. I think the real trick is growing the plant until it has a really big well established root system and making sure the roots have the opportunity to grab onto rocks and pebbles and stuff that will make the plant heavy so that when the goldfish dig it up (and you know they will) the plant won't float to the surface and make a big mess (I grew my plants in a tank without goldfish where they wouldn't get jossled). My plants stay in the ground just long enough so that by the next time I do a water change it's time to replant them. I have enough fish to know that goldfish are my favorite. So much character! fish avatar
lol cat wants the goldfish! My goldfish used to tear up and eat all my live plants. I figured out that if I grew a really waxy sturdy plant in a different tank and let the roots grow around rocks then replant it with the rocks in the goldfish tank the fish couldn't dig it up anymore! yay! fish avatar
