Fluval Nano Flora Aquatic Plant Kit

Does it have everything I need for a planted tank?

Will the filter be too strong for a betta?

This looks like a great "starter kit" for a planted tank, but I don't want to spend a over $100 just to figure out I need to get a ton of different stuff.

Tank

Looks like the only things I would need to buy are a heater and the actual plants?

Well and of course a fish...

I think you should buy this tank!!! It does have evrything exept for
*food(s)--------> anywhere for $2-5
*betta(or other fis?!?!?!)-->anywhere from $2-30 depending on type
*net------------>$3-4
Hope i helped and the only reason that a betta would be 30 dollars is if it was the elephant ear betta or a "pure" bred betta from thailand.

Bettas can potentially run up to 500 dollars

Ok, well apart from the betta (which I believe some rare ones actually go into the thousands!) and the betta specific items like heater, net, food, etc, how does this tank look for a beginner wanting to do a planted aquarium?

I've read some reviews and people have recommended switching out the filter for a smaller one, adding a second light, and buying a second bag of substrate. That is really going to be more money than I want to spend...

Personally I would just start my own planted tank!

Which is what I am doing. Then you can buy everything you need on your own budget! I'll only need to spend around 40$ to get everything for a planted tank, and that includes the tank I am going to be getting.

Maybe price everything out separately and see if it's less, or more expensive than buying that tank.

I really want a cube, which is why I am so interested in this tank. If I could get a cube by itself, that would be great! I like the size of this tank too.

I do like it, but I just don't want to spend over $100 on it if I will need to change a bunch of stuff just to get it to grow plants. If I can buy a tank, heater, filter, light, substrate, etc for less then I would rather do that.

I guess I'm off to search for glass cube aquariums!

If you are looking for a clear cube, check out the Eheim Aquastyle tanks.
They come in several sizes. Filter, great light, etc.

I have two of the 4G and really like them.

I've seen a few people on other forums who have had a lot of success keeping bettas in planted Fluval Floras/Ebis (same tank, different contents in package). Plus, it comes with a pretty nifty natural-looking rock wall backdrop and a good lid to prevent bettacide. Unless you're growing some demanding high-light species of plants, you should be fine with the stock lighting.

The Eheim Aquastyle tanks are nice, too, though.
