Greetings to all! I just completed my registration.
I have a new betta, Li, who just moved from his 1 gallon to a nice 5 gallon home. He was fearful at first but is having a much better time in his larger tank.
I was wondering what types of live plants I could acquire for that size tank, and from where, and maybe how much I should be spending for it/them.
Also, what types of fish and other kritters would do well with him?
He's so neat, and he LOVES the interaction between my family and himself. However, when we are gone, I don't want him to be depressed. (Even tho' my precious kitty, Annie, thinks he's the neatest buddy, especially since she can't take a poke at him with the hood on his new home! They will sit and look at each other for a LOOOONG time! My daughter got the cutest pic today...Annie's looks have gone from, "Here, sushi," to "Hi, buddy!")
I saw some really neat blue lobsters at a store yesterday. They were about 1-1/2" long. What do you think about adding one?
Also, then, whatever other kritters I would add...would that change the type(s) of live plants I could/should add?
I really enjoyed reading your answers to others' questions, and I thank you in advance for helping us!
