What plant to grow in Gravel

Postby souvikr » Thu Jan 07, 2016 11:51 am

In my 7 footer tank, the right hand side (~4') is gravel. While the left side is full of plants with Aquasoil, right hand side is looking dull. Plus CO2 is not being used properly as mentioned in the other thread.

Planning to grow some plans on this side also. I am anyway running CO2 and have 3 daylights to give good coverage. Following EI dosing.

Can you please suggest what plants I can grow in grave in this set up?

The plan I already have on the soil sides are Amazon Sword, Cryptocoryne, Ludwiga, Bacopa, Hygrophilia, Cabomba and would be happy to use the cutting from this side.

I also have a driftwood and have some plans for that but that would come later.
