I just upgraded my one gallon, no filter bowl to a nice 5 gallon aquarium with a weak filter and am very proud of it. I have all the test kits for the water levels, heater, and thermometer. I haven't put the betta in yet cause i'm letting the water air out but I am worried If he will be able to see his reflection on the walls. I also bought some tiny white rock gravel for it and some of those glass decorative rocks for decoration and am now concerned if he can see his reflection in those.
How many plants i should put in and what kind would also be a great help and other things that would be useful for a new aquarium.
also: any recommendations on compatible tank mates? (my betta is a male)
