Hey, Greg - Measured the Ph

I measured the difference in Ph between morning and night. I have in there some java moss, four clumps of java fern tied to some wood and a couple of small swords in pots. My tank is a 55gal. The difference between morning and night was only .4 (6.4 to 6.8). All the plants are small, but they're green and growing.

I don't think I'm going to try pothos right now. Sounds like it takes what it wants and the fish get what's left over. That's fine with a mature tank with a decent bioload, but mine is still pretty new and not quite stable yet, so I think I'll stick with the plants I know. They can grow along with the tank.
