10g divided plan

How does this plan look? Please make any suggestions! :D

I will be making two homemade dividers, placing the filter and heater in between, with a Betta on either side.
One hiding hole type of decoration on each side, one fake plant, and some java moss. I picked what I've read is one of the best beginner plants, because I've never had plants before.

Sounds good! Java fern and anubias are also some good beginner low tech plants :) just make sure the fake plants aren't pokey or spiky or sharp at all! :)

sounds good :) good luck


for the java moss and anubias, i have never had live plants and i am also wondering how to care for them. I have a standard light on my tank, although i have natural sunlight (my tank is by a window). Can these plants live in a high ph (7.8-8.0) and very hard water? also how hard are they to care for and can you put them in a cycling tank? Last but not least, what matinence to they require?

Thanks!

ps. can they live in sand?

My rainbow betta fish, from my experience anubias and java moss don't need exceptional light to grow...I'm pretty sure they can grow in low lighting...well definately the moss and I'm pretty sure about the anubias...

As for the sand, that's what I have in all of my tanks and they are all planted and doing just fine

For the anubias, you can't burry the rhizome (the thick stem part where all the leaves sprout from) you could burry just the roots and not the rhizome, but the best way (and the best looking way) in my opinion is to tie it onto a rock or piece of wood...I just use fishing line for mine
