I honestly don't know. I've thought about bringing up the bad fish products my walmart's selling to my boss (I work there q.q) but not sure how to be diplomatic about 'why are you supporting the betta live in muddy puddles myth?' or the 'how can you sell broken water testing kits or thermometers that don't work?' without getting into a fight with him. And the department manager int he pet section knows nothing about fish (I don't think she's a very caring woman actually..) and couldn't care less what she's selling. =/

Don't most plants? I mean they eat ammonia, nitrites, nitrates...somewhere I saw someone with a hand-made illustration in their cycle thread.

Marimo is an algae. I am not sure which kingdom some algae seem to be in different kingdoms.

Marimo sounds like a very beginner plant lol. I might be able to keep it alive. I just measured the tank and it actually holds a little more than 4 gallons.

I'm glad it's bigger than I thought.. :) we're on our way right now to Petco, lol. I'm mostly looking at getting two filters for right now, but I'll be looking at the live plants.

Where exactly would I find them?
I was just at Petco and got two filters for my new tanks, a small thing of Omega One pellets, Prime, a small decoration, stress zyme (just to try it out), and some Betta bulbs. I don't know anything about them but they were only like a dollar each and had a guaranteed refund if they didn't grow.. Plus we were making stops and didn't want any plants to freeze. I did look at anubias.

The lady told me she had her own 55 gallon tank. She recommended prime before she saw it in my hand, so she must've known at least a little bit. I asked her about the substrate and she said to just drop the bulbs in and they would root themselves into the substrate? And I could also use regular aquarium gravel?

Not really a loss if I can't get them to grow, lol. There were a few other bulbs as well that I knew nothing about.
