    I have set up a apisto tank, got Baenschi and Trifasciata in there, I have Swords, cabomba and some crypt( not sure of the type), planted, looking for other nice south american, quick(is) growing that will help fill out spaces to make more hidey holes, got lots of branch wood in there and got some Red Moor Wood coming too as well as some caves.

    Any suggestions please, not looking at carprting plants wanting a natural look from the tank.

    Thanks

    Spolit for choice really, there are loads from South America. Take a look at the Tropica web site as they list the origins.

    By the way, AFAIK all crypts are from Asia.

    Java moss and Riccia are asian (Java moss comes from Java), I think Tropica label them as cosmopolitan in which case they come up in South america, if you want quite a strict biotope, do not include these in your setup.

    Ceratophylum demersum also appears everywhere. I'm sure there are others.
