Hi everyone! I just thought id share my tank.. its just a small 5 gal with one plant currently. Im going to try to make it nice and FULL of plants before i add my betta. I had a ton of left over eco earth so i decided to put that in under the sand. Its kind of an experiment. Has anyone else ever done this? What other plants should i add? Thanks!
There's a sticky in the planted tank section that lists out a bunch of aquatic plants. They're still working on filling out all the info, but I just google the names of the plants that have no info yet.
I'm new at this, but I have a java fern in my tank. It's growing like a weed even with my poor lighting. So I'd recommend that, especially if you don't have high light : ). Good luck!
Is that Anubias that is already in there? If so, that Rhizome cannot be buried like it is; it will eventually rot. Anubias and Java Fern do best when tied to driftwood/rocks/ornaments so that the plant grows lateral instead of up mostly. But when planted like that it will die eventually if it is in fact Anubias as it looks like it.
Anacharis is a great plant to use as well for low lighting
