    Need suggestions for background plants for shrimp tank.

    I just re-did my 5g shrimp tank. Currently have Anubias nano, crypto and dwarf hairgrass in it. I want some taller plants for the background. Had hornwort and I liked it but it grows so **** fast I'm constantly trimming it. I'm looking for something that will look good and not grow too fast. I'm fairly new to scaping and tanks so all I really know about is the stuff sold at Petco or LFS. If there is some sold online that are a bit more exotic I'd like to hear about them. Appreciate any help you can give.

    Not for a 5 Gal, the Vals will out grow the height of the tank. Moss wall, giant hairgrass would make a interesting wall affect if you can use a barrier beneath the substrate to confined the runners from getting out of the back.

    Pogo erectus is a really slow grower for me.

    True lol I didn't read the 5g part. Ludwegia have been doing well for me. They grow slow and that a nice red to them depending on what u get.

    If you want to keep it low light Hygrophila sp's or Ludwigia sp's. If you prefer not to have stem plants. Java fern or needle leaf java, bolbitis. Crypts will also do well in low light, but will send runners.
