This is my first serious aquarium; all my previous bettas have been kept in little bowls and averaged 2 yr lifespans. I just recently got a beautiful blue and yellow doubletail and wanted a nice large tank, as well as trying out some aquatic plants.
Right now my betta is in a small 1L plastic container while I get the parts together for the new tank. I am now looking at filters, something with low current due to bettas preffering still water, and something I could use with plants for a 10 gallon tank.
I also am wondering if there is anything I should know spefically about filters and aquarium plants; I plan to get some anubias plants and java moss to start off, later maybe adding duckweed, a sunken log and (maybe) dwarf hairgrass.
