I have had this set up for about 2 months now. It's the 6.6 gallon tank from Petco. The lighting is what came with the tank. I have a small heater and a filter (filter came with the tank). I've also got a bubbler in each of the divided sections.
I'm hoping to identify some of the plants I have. I know I have Java fern, Java Moss, Moss balls and Duck weed. I'm trying to identify the two small plants on the left. I think I need to get a better picture. I know they are two different species.
I'm also trying to identify the big plant in the middle section in the front.
One of the leaves broke off so I moved it to another section to give the betta in there something new until it started dying, but it hasn't started dying it. It actually produced a single root. So what do I do now? It has been floating for about a week.
My other question is about the java fern. It looks like I might have a baby plant growing that's attached itself to one of the leaves of my java fern. Should I leave it or what?
Please excuse the betta head. He's such an attention hog :)
I was wondering if I should add more plants? I would like to reach the point where I don't need to do many water changes. It's a pain in the butt to have to vacuum the gravel, since I have to pull EVERYTHING out.
Hopefully these pictures are clear enough that I can get some answers. If not, I can take new ones.
I feel like I should mention that I originally had a 5 gallon divided tank, but the light died so I upgraded. My plants are doing SO much better now.
