    Default Most realistic Fake Plants

    Whats the most realistic fake plant you have found? My current group of festivums are turning into holy terrors on my lotus and Amazon swords. Im going to have to move them out of my display to their own 75 g . I'd like some "plants" in there. I have used to pretty good looking jungle plants from the craft store but they always also end up getting crudy looking over time. I don't want cheapo tacky looking fluorescent colored plastic blobs. i will do my roots and submerge pothos but but some variety would be good.

    its funny I never had festivums bother plants before but thid group is just real big into plant based diets even with veggie flakes in their daily diet.

    They were a bit too active for the 125 With discus so this will be for best. I may try just 1 pair in the 125.

    thanks,
    Al

    I think Fluval makes some decent faux plants but they are not cheap.

    Fluval @ Amazon.com

    I like the fluval plants as well. Though pricey, mine lasted years of use including pretty frequent bleach baths to kill algae on the “foliage”.
