Setting up a bare bottom tank with plants
I am setting up a planted 10 gallon for my ACF. Because he is so messy I wanted have my tank bare bottom to make it easier to clean. I also don't want my frog to eat any gravel or sand and die. I really want to have live plants so that it feels like a pond to him and because they will help with the ammonia and nitrates.
What, if any, live plants can live in a bare bottom tank? I was thinking maybe there were some floating ones that could work. I had live plants in there before with some gravel, so I know that the lighting in the tank is good enough for plants.
Also, is there anything special I need to do to care for plants in a bare bottom tank? Do I need to add some kind of plant food or can I just leave them in there to absorb the ammonia and waste.
