Dear Aquatic Plant Seller,
 
I want to inform you that the state of Maine recently passed a law making it illegal to sell or distribute 11 species of aquatic plants in the state. These plants are considered to be invasive and therefore a threat to the natural waters of Maine. Please check your aquatic plants to make sure you don't sell any of the listed species to Maine companies or individuals in Maine. We also request that you take the time to note on your website that these plants are illegal to sell in Maine. Contact the Maine DEP Invasive Aquatic Species Program at 207-287-3901 or e-mail Karen.A.Hahnel@maine.gov <mailto:Karen.A.Hahnel@maine.gov if you have any questions. Below is a list of the 11 illegal plants with possible alternate names.
 
Cabomba caroliniana (Fanwort, Carolina fanwort, Green Cabomba) Egeria densa (Brazilian elodea) Anacharis Anacharis densa Anacharis canadensis gigantea Elodea Elodea densa Elodea canadensis gigantea Elodea canadensis (occasionally) Brazilian waterweed Common waterweed Leafy elodea Hydrilla verticillata (Hydrilla, Water thyme) Hydrocharis morsus-ranae (Frogbit, European frogbit) Myriophyllum aquaticum (Parrot feather) Myriophyllum proserpinacoides Myriophyllum aquatica Brazilian Watermilfoil Myriophyllum heterophyllum (Variable-leaf watermilfoil) Myriophyllum sp. (or spp.) Myriophyllum pinnatum Two-leaf watermilfoil Red Foxtail Red Myrio Myriophyllum spictureatum (Eurasian watermilfoil) Myriophyllum sp. (or spp.) Spiked watermilfoil Najas minor (European naiad, Brittle water-nymph) Nymphoides peltata (Yellow floating heart) Potamogeton crispus (Curly-leaf pondweed) Trapa natans (Water chestnut)
 
Thank you for your cooperation.
 
Sincerely,

I have a 29 gallon fresh/warm water tank with 6 tiger barbs and 2 red-tailed sharks (yes, I know, but they don't bother each other much). I would really like some plants for my aquarium but I don't have the first clue. I can't keep high maintenance plants and I have a medium gravel substrate about an inch thick.
 
I am thinking about getting a crab soon as well. Are there any plants that I could get that would be fairly easy to maintain and would survive in a simple warm water tank with my fish and a possible crab?
 
Thank you very much!

Reply. Hello Matthew. Here are some comments.

Tiger Barbs and Red Tailed Sharks are usually compatible tank mates. If you have one or two Tiger Barbs, they will usually cause problems. Tiger Barbs are a schooling fish, and if you keep a group of six or more, they usually don't cause problems. Click here for more information about Tiger Barbs.

Apparently you know that two Red Tailed Sharks will usually quarrel, and the stronger one will make the weaker one miserable.

Your Sharks must be very equal, so one does not yet dominate the other. But this situation will probably change, and so you should watch them carefully to be sure one does not get stronger and make the other miserable. Click here for more information about Redtail Sharks.

There are two plants that usually do very well in aquariums. The Java Ferns and the Aponogeton. We usually sell both of them. Click here now to see the live plant species that we currently have in stock. We almost always have the Java Ferns in stock, and we usually have the Aponogetons. I recommend a group of several plants of each type.

I think a Crab would do just fine and be lots of fun to watch and enjoy. It will also help stir your thick layer of gravel. By the way you should consider removing some gravel. Your fish will do much better with a layer of gravel that is no more than 1/4" thick.

A layer of gravel that is 1" thick will almost always cause problems with your fish's health. Click here for more information about gravel.
