    Live plants

    can get some weight that wrap around the base of plants until the roots get a hold in the gravel...just dont wrap them tight as you may damage the roor stock of the plant and do what @bluebelle said theres also plants like hm or hc..i cant remember which one it is that you can get already attatched to metal gauze as far as soil goes im not sure but would imagine you would have to put soil down then put a covering of fine gravel over the top to stop it dirtying up the water maybe proper lighting and fertiliser for plants may be a better option.......then theres co2 which helps growth immensely. ....ive only ever messed with home made co2 units never the bottle and regulator type some plants really do boom with co2 @bluebelle seems to have a good run with plants ..personally i would bend her ear a bit

  18. apparently as of 2009 we have spent 3.3 b on controlling feral animals and fish.. not to mention the losses in productivity the european carp herpes virus which was to be released last year cost nearly 20 million to develop.... now they say it could cost us another way....exports could suffer heres a read if you got the time https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/invasive-species/publications/review-impacts-introduced-ornamental-fish-species-wild-populations&ved=2ahUKEwjDwe2Z7JTgAhVGbn0KHQnEA3YQFjAMegQIBRAB&usg=AOvVaw0cuRGbsSAOGpPD-H73lm0L its a big read but interesting including hybrydising possabilities enjoy

    Show us your ferals

    @sharknado who really cares if they killed them, probably better than taking them home and putting them in a tank and bringing a disease in and wiping out who knows how many fish theyre not natives so they have no place in our waterways cos thats exactly what we wanna do ..shout someone down cos they are getting rid of ferals in the creek,,,are you kidding its shit like that that will stop people culling carp,mosquito fish,talapia and even theold sword tails and guppies that are everywhere...pull ylur head out of your rear end , theyre doing our natives a favour and maybe they dont have somewhere to put them thats it rake a couple of kids over the coals for it...hope it makes u feel like a big man pearl cichlids have an established population in the wild and that only means 1 thing for our natives....they gotta fight harder to survive i suppose that you would rather see the kids in front of the playstation instad of being outside anything that hinders the onslaught of feral fish on our native population is bloody alright by me these kids need praise not ridicule..
