So I have not had any luck keeping live plants, most get pulled up and can never keep amazon swords alive. I am thinking about just going the artificial route but was wondering if anyone here has also gone that route and if you have any pictures. Any tips or advise are also welcome.

That's a 30 gallon I kept my Headstanders in who eat plants like it's going out of style

Jdavis3458 (http://www.atlantaaquarium.com/member.php?3342-Jdavis3458) , great looking tank. I had artificial plants in my tanks before I went live. They can look great, it just depends on if you have the ability to arrange them attractively (like you can see above). Occasionally they might also get black beard algae, but I think it is easier to take care of than without real plants to worry about. I used to keep oscars, and artificial plants were the only way to go.

Thank you that tank is now long gone but I keep the photo around. I used some marine land plastic plants on a 6x6 grid and a pair of scissors the only special ingredient was a six pac of beer to harness some inspiration
