I have never kept live plants before. I know a little about them. What lighting conditions and such are needed for lilly pads? Are lilly pads the best way to go or is there another plants that works better? I want something to dim the light and oxygenate the tank.

I am going to buy some fake lilly pads to block some light. Post anything you find on live lillies because I would rather go that way.

What I do is buy £5 worth of fish random plants form my local fish shop, and when they have died, or look nasty, I get some more.

oh I remember what made me not get them, they have a long thin stock that I felt my Ps would tear and bite through in no time, maybe if you had a single serra in tank it would work, I just dont feel it would last in a multi pygo tank

any type of large plant should do fine ...and many people find great amounts of success with amazon swords for your P's ... plust this is a really cheap plant to obtain as well ... does not require any special conditions either ... just ocasionally may become uprooted if extreme activitiies are being held near the plant

water lettuce floats and doesnt have roots like a lily pad would, the do have roots they just dont get into soil, it is fairly cheap stuff too, the only place I can tell you where to find it is at, www.petswarehouse.com
