I have a very happy Betta who is currently living with a ghost shrimp. The tank is very heavily planted. The top is slightly (about 25%) covered by 3 floating Anacharis. On the bottom I have one java fern and 5 more Anacharis that reach all the way to the top also. And I have 2 moss balls.
I am planning to go out and buy java moss and cover the whole bed with it. My filter is also contains all 3 stages of filtering (Mechanical, chemical and biological), and I have aeration and co2 feeding system too. The tank is fully cycled with ammonia at 0, nitrite at 0.3 (the nutrafin test says that 0.3 is good, I am unsure what that 0.3 stands for anyways), and pH at 7.1
Once the java moss covers the whole bed and works out, I intend to add a platy and cherry shrimp. Would that be a good idea? It's just I see how awesomely my Betta and shrimp like to race between all my Anacharis that I want to see a few more swimming too.
