I got two Amazon Swordtail plants today. They are in a 10g with 3 Mystery Snails and a Betta. So far my Betta, Atlas, is in love and the Mysteries are hanging out near them. I will be getting some more for my other tank in a couple of weeks ^.^ I've read over the thread about starting a planted tank, I just had a few questions...
I don't have any plant nutritives- do I need to get some?
Is it okay that I left it in the little plastic pot/cup it came in?
How do I trim the leaves? One is sticking out of the water.
One of my Mysteries has already eaten one of the smaller leaves- will they kill the plant?
How must water should I change during my weekly changes?
Should I still do a gravel vaccuming?
