Hey everyone! So I purchased an 8 gallon glass tank the other day that comes set up with everything you need to do a planted tank. I have planted four plants so far and have some java moss tied to my piece of wood that is the decoration in the tank. Any suggestions and tips are much appreciated!
If you always do what you've always done, then you'll always get what you've always got.
One thing I wish I had done from the get-go is to keep a 'plant diary' with pics or drawings of the plants, their common and scientific names, what works for them and not, how big they get, etc etc... Also, to make a tank sketch naming what plant is where.
Really -- do this. It'll help you keep track, and over time you'll find it helps you learn more about aquatic plants. Plus, it's fun!
