Smile New Betta Keeper

Hey Guys!

My name is Caitlin and I'm new to the site and to Betta fish keeping. I have a 5.5 gal tank with a filter, hood and light, heater, thermometer, gravel, and some decorations. I don't have a fish yet because I wanted to make sure I have a complete understanding of the care first. I'm still struggling to understand Cycling? and can anyone recommend some live plants for beginners?

Hello and welcome to the forum. I'll see if I can find someone who can recommend some good plants for you.

My Pennywort plant was one of the first I got and it's still alive almost a year after I bought it. :) So I definitely recommend that. Duckweed is a floater and it's apparently hard to kill. Java fern and anubius nana seem to be good beginner plants too.
