    Hello Everyone!!

    I'm new to the forum and new to fish keeping... Any help or suggestions are more than welcome.
    I currently have an AquaH2O tank (70long, 60high, 45wide) with a sump filtration system.
    It has been running for about two months now and I have not yet had any trouble.
    I currently have these following fish:

    2 x Guppies
    2 x Balloon Mollies
    2 x Scissor Tails
    5 x Angels (3 of them are Koi Angels)
    1 x Rainbow Shark
    5 x Neon's

    I want to get more plant's as well... Any suggestions?

    Like I said I'm new to all of this... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Nadia, I personally would go for Vallisneria. Thats what i've got in my setup. However you might go for anything of your choice. I would suggest Java Fern and vallisneria. Don't rush though get a little at first. Vallisneria grow quite well and will give off new shoots if under the correct conditions.

    Plants I will always recommend to anyone are:

    Limnophila Sessiliflora or Heterophylla
    Hygrophila Polysperma
    Hygrophila Corymbosa
    Najas Guadalupensis
    Microsorum Pteropus
    Anubias Barteri var.nana
    Ceratopteris Cornuta
    Ceratopteris Silliquosa

    I can go on with more plants but it all comes down to what you like & prefer. But it also depends what you can find there by LFS your side. Whenever you come closer to CPT side, gimme a shout and I'll give you some plant cuttings to get started.

    Cheers
    Dale
