thanks for tip about looking for glassware. I just Tupperware as a temporary home for my last betta, it wasn't exactly pretty but I'm sure glassware would look a lot nicer xD not that I'm really all too fussed with appearance. I'd rather have a happy fish.
Where is the best place to get plants. Am I best off ordering from a specific website, scouting aquabid/ebay, or looking to see what they have at my local petco? I want to get quality/healthy plants so they have the best chance of flourishing and a lower chance of my tank crashing.
Also, what about adding a semi aquatic plant to the top like lucky bamboo. I remember reading that since they tend to grow faster they can suck up a ton of ammonia. Is that a good or bad idea?
It's what I do. I have an enormous
round bowl from HomeGoods, and ever since, that's where I scout. I also think that some of their glass knick-knacks make wonderful tank decor. I'm averse to the ones they sell at pet stores because of how sharp the edges are. And my brother jacked the Dremel (he's working out of town, ATMo) so...
> Honestly, I would try to find some plants locally, before resorting to having them shipped. We have plenty of fish, pet, and aquarium stores in our area, so I have the luxury of looking around. Plus, we have a couple of pond stores around here, and some of the local plant nurseries have pond sections, so I have many options before the internet.
> I've never used LBamboo, but I do have plants hanging out the tops of most of mine. If your betta is a root biter, make sure they're not toxic, and I always
make sure that none
of the leaves hang over the water, always over the dry side. I've got Pothos, Wandering Jew, Heart-Leaf Philo and Arrowhead (Neo-something).
