In my business I am daily inundated with questions from people and a question that comes up consistently is What plants can I have in my fish tanks that do not require high levels of lighting or CO2? Well I hope this article will give you a few tidbits on what plants can and will do good in most single-fluorescent-strip tanks. Java Moss ( Vesicularia dubyana ) Java Moss is a great plant for low to medium levels of lighting. Java moss can be attached to rock, wood, or even a coconut shell. To attach this plant as well as Java Fern or Bolbitis (below) just secure it onto the wood with either fishing line or thread. After 2-3 weeks the plant will adhere to the wood and the thread can be removed or you can let it disintegrate on its own.

In this article, I hope to provide solid information on the proper care of these wonderful fish, and show you how a shoal of loaches can really liven up your aquarium.
