I am completely new to planted tanks. I'd like to setup from scratch, a 10 gallon planted tank.
I'd like to have something soft for my Thai halfmoon betta to rest on. I'd also love to have some color in there. I don't know of any aquarium plants that carry color, but maybe you guys could direct me. :)
As far as lights go, I have a full-spectrum fluorescent light on my 10 gallon hood that came with it when I bought it.
Also, do I need to plant in dirt or can I plant in gravel? Dirt just sounds so messy.
