Talk Me Out of It!

My local Craigslist has a 20 gal tank with filter for $25.

My house is small. I have 2 crown tail girls and was going to put them into a divided Fluval Spec 5 gal.

But part of me wants a betta sorority natural planted tank.

Pls talk me out of this.

The seller told me he was doing a Walstad natural but didn't have the time to care for the fish properly (I think something tragic happened).

Sounds like a lot of work and so much time you will need to put into setting it up and then testing the water to be sure all is going okay and water changes, making sure the plants are all thriving ..better think long and hard about it !

Do it, do it, do it!

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.
