Hey, basically i've started planning for my first tank set up but thought i'd get some helpful advice before i do so. I've aquired the basics so far such as a 25 watt heater, back mounted filter and 2.5 gallon tank.
I was wondering what the best set up ideaas would be and what substrates and plants would help with tank care... i want to give it a natural feel with live plants to give the fish a realistic habbitate but my local aquatics store wasnt much help in giving advice for betta care.
So feel free to post any and all help you think would be benificial to me even if it seems obvious. Im anxious to get the tank set up so it can cycle ready for my first fish when its safe to intorduce it to the tank.
