started my NPT

So I started my 6.6 gallon NPT today. I bought some red lugwida plants and a microsword which I put in the 29 gallon. I have black tahitian moon sand in the tank.

NPT means soil and cap method. Otherwise you just have a live plant in your tank. Sorry for sounding like a jerk but I do not mean it this way



Please watch the language you use- this is a family friendly forum. Thank you. Olympia.

The description for this forum says "Discuss adding and caring for plants in your betta tank, planted tank species, etc."

It doesn't say anything about NPT tanks only.

I think anyone wanting to discuss/post about plants they are adding is appropriate.

I think he was just saying that because the title of this post says NPT.

Wouldn't it have been easier to add the bottom layer before the top layer? o.O
