I will be getting my supplies tomorrow for sure!! So far I have this list for my NPT:
Organic potting soil
pool filtered sand or fine gravel (not sure yet)
3 or 5 gallon tank (not sure yet, suggestions?)
stem plants, floaters, etc. (will be covering about 70% of tank)
Will i need special items for the plants (food, iron, etc.? help!)
cherry shrimp (how many?)
trumpet snail (how many?)
I have a heater already and I'm told I don't need a filter? I have the basic low maintenance plants written down. I will only be housing one female betta fish. I love her and want her to be alone. She is going to be spoiled. This will be my first NPT, eventually I would like my other 3 tanks to be NPTs too. Is soil a good idea? I hear it may not keep the water clear?? IDK!
If anyone can offer advice, tips, any of that good stuff please do so. Help a fellow fish owner out!
Thank you guys!!!
