Added new plants to my 5 gallon betta tank, I think Mr. Squiggles approves.

I added some Telanthera Cardinalis yesterday as well as a blue mystery snail.. I'm very happy with how this tank is turning out and I can't wait to watch it grow.

The autofocus on my phone is terrible.. it shoots in hi def, but can't stay focused.. :(

Also, make sure you select the 1080p for viewing!

very beautiful. some plants at the front are able to grow quite tall :) I do suggest other plants that stay smaller, such as the smaller anubias species, dwarf saggitaria, some smaller species of crypts also looks spectacular.

betiful tank! Just for the future i want to recommend to quarantine anything living including the plant, because it can carry diseases.

Yeah, they will get pretty huge.. I'll probably trim them, or eventually move them over to my 29G. I do have some crypts in there but they are very tiny and hard to see in the video.
