I've been getting my 12 gallon tank ready for my 4 girls, which should arrive in about one week. Today I did a 80 percent water change, vacuumed the gravel, cleaned the sides, and removed any plant debris.
I still too new to remember the names of my plants. I know there is wisteria, anubis, hornwort, and banana. There are two long leaf plants, but I don't know their names. I want to buy some floating water sprite to give better surface coverage. Can anyone tell me where I can purchase some?
I have driftwood with a plant growing on it, a floating log, the red cylinder with holes in it, clay pot, and a decorative reef.
Currently in the tank are one female betta, two female platys and one male platy, three albino cory cats and one panda, and six surviving platy fry. I have one other female betta currently in quarantine. It will grieve me to take my platys back to the lfs, because I have enjoyed watching the babies, but since they are pooping machines, I will take them out of the tank.
So that will leave me with 6 female bettas and four cory cats. Should I get a mystery snail? Anything else?
I hope I get a good score from you guys, but I've got a week to make whatever improvements I need to make before the girls get here.
Thanks for your advice!
