View Full Version : Plants which are rarely eaten

08-24-2003, 07:42 AM

Thank you for all your replies for my previous posts, this forum really helps.

I have heard that severums are a big problem with plants. They eat them! Well I need to buy a bunch of plants for my aquarium soon, which ones will severums not eat? (I am more interested in the taller plants)

I want to place the plants in between the rocks in my aquarium, then can I remove the pots that the plants are in because they are much too big. Does the moss have to be removed also?

you should definitely check out the Crinum species. They are commonly known as 'water onion' - and guess what they taste like! They grow tall like Vals, but don't propagate themselves very fast. Their leaves are tough and the taste discourages repeat nibbles.

Anubias is also a good plant. it is a slow. low light creeper.

Java fern may also be a good choice.
