I have read that its best to quarantine plants before adding them to your tank. This may sound like a dumb question, but how exactly do I do that? And for how long- and what am I looking for if something is wrong? (Snails crawling out or something?). Heating? Water conditioner?
I have a 10 gal tank with a aqua clear 20 filter, currently home to 1 male betta (Porcupine), 3 ghost shrimp, 1 anubias plant, 1 small sword plant and 1 small crypt.
I would really like to make it a "heavily planted" tank, but as I shop for more plants I am so hesitant to upset my happy betta by introducing something awful.
I have an empty 5 gallon and 1.5 gallon I could use for the quarantine.
Thank you for any help!
