 I  am  trying  to  replicate  a  slow  moving  stream  in  one  the  tanks  and  need  suggestions  on  low-tech  plants  that  can  tolerate  a  bit  of  flow.  Tank  is  36x18x18.
 
 I  already  have  Vallineria  and  lagenandra.

 Most  of  the  show  tanks  have  pretty  high  flow  rate  than  you  can  imagine.  SO  most  of  the  plants  would  love  the  flow.
 ...thats  secondary.
 
 But  in  a  gushing  like  waters,  try  rooted  plants-bulbs/rosettes  and  ferns  like  Beta  suggests.
 
 
 BTW  in  this  new  world  tanks,  Vallineria  is  a  3rd  class  plant  Very Happy  try  some  Cyperus  helferi,  Crypt.sp  spiralis/retrospiralis  etc  instead.
 
 Cheers!

 Aponogettons  can  be  tried  as  well.  They  arent  expensive  and  easily  available  most  of  the  times.  Once  rooted  well,  they  can  withstand  flow  easily.  I  really  like  the  way  they  sway  in  current.

 Got  java  fern,  mosses  and  subwassertang  for  tying  to  driftwoods.  Anubias  will  get  shortly.  Was  looking  for  plants  that  can  provide  a  good  thick  growth  for  Oreichthys  and  native  shrimps  to  hide  like  the  Vals.
 
 Lagenandra  was  picked  up  from  Coorg  growing  under  really  high  currents.  Sadly  I  picked  up  only  a  couple.
 
 Bolbitis  is  pretty  expensive  I  guess.  So  ruled  it  out.  It  looks  fantastic  though.

 Sai,  the  primary  intent  is  to  make  a  small  barbs  community  tank  so  I  just  selected  the  plants  which  grow  really  fast,  easily  and  are  not  very  expensive   Smile   Vals  were  picked  up  on  collection  trips  and  I  have  always  seen  small  fishes  taking  refuge  in  the  thick  Vals  growth.  Hence  the  choice.

 Aponogeton  Crispus  is  an  easy  plants.  A  single  plant  can  produce  a  lot  of  new  plants  in  2-3  months.

 Understood  mate!
 Vals  would  need  that  maintainance  effort,  so  just  to  heave  you  off  that.
 That  crypts  surely  come  cheap  though  Very Happy  bulbs  as  I  had  mentioned  in  form  of  aponogeton.sp  will  look  niceey  nice  too.
 
 Cheers  man.
