Hi there, i'm still fairly new to aquariums and bettas. Most of what i have setup is just from bits of information gathered from pet store, aquarium shop and a bit of online research. I've read up on the threads about live plants and nitrogen cycles but i still dont quite understand it very well.
I currently have a ~1.5 gal tank setup with a live plant that's rooted to a piece of driftwood in my tank, i do a water change once a week and scrub the leaves when i do that. I've had this for about a month of so now, Nibblez and Tenshin are both happy with it.
The question is, there are talks about shrimp and snails in the tanks, various plants with different effects, ammonia, fresh water test kits, and i have no idea how any of these fit in? Sorry, just a complete newbie, might seem fine to me but maybe i'm doing something wrong.
I'm planning to get a tank of similar size to place Nibblez in but figured i should understand the tank eco system first before i work on a second one.
