New plant from another tank
Hey guys! :'D Been a while since I've been on here, been so busy @_@ Did hay making for the first time. *Flops over*
Anyways... Shark. I got the chance to stop at a store specializing in just fish. I was a little disappointed because I was looking specifically for silk plants, and they didn't have any; lots of overly priced plastic ones, though. I picked up some of the stuff that's been on my to-get list for shark, but I really wanted to get him plants or something so he had a place to hide in and so his cage would be more interesting. I can tell he's starting to get bored now.
(On another note, I think he started tail-biting - I'm gonna do some research into this. Doesn't look like fin-rot, from what I've heard of it.)
And here's my big question:
The gal at the place showed me some live plants I could get, but they were already in their aquariums that had other fish in them. I did buy some moss and a leafy plant (@_@ yes. I'm horrible. I already completely forgot the names of them), and I was wondering about quarantining and anything else I need to do with them? Looks like I also got what I think is some duckweed in with the two plants.
I've read something about acclimating them like you would a fish - floating the bag and adding water slowly over time.
I've tried looking this up online and on here, and didn't get an answer I was comfortable with, so I'm posting here. I hope it's not already been asked >.<'' sorry if it has been.
The other employee at the store, when I asked about if there was anything I needed to do, just told me to put them right into the tank. ._.'' I'm not so sure. So I'll hold off on putting them in and wait for an answer.
Edit: I believe the moss is Java Moss.
