The title says it all: What plants do you find bettas enjoy? I have a 5.5 gallon long, divided tank I would like to convert to live plants, as I prefer live to fake and have a lighting fixture laying around and being wasted from a dismantled 10g tall that had been planted
Obviously this means they can be high lighting requirements, but I don't want any that require CO2 systems, as the only one I have I don't trust to use.
I have gravel as substrate, with some boiled smooth, fancy rocks and fake 'silk' plants as decorations. The only live plant I have in there now is an Amazon Sword, who's life almost ended when I accidentally mutilated it when moving my other fish to a bigger tank. It *was* a nice top growth on a much more beautiful, tall plant, but since there was a good bunch of roots sticking out I figured i'd try planting this severed part in the 5.5g and see if it would live. And anyway, if it does live, it'll need to go into a bigger tank. <<;
I'll be honest, i'm no plant expert, even if I have mostly planted tanks.
So it's probably best not to suggest anything that is suuuper picky, it'd be a 50/50 chance of survival
