Thanks and sure! :) That's over 100 dollars and something just for plants.. ._. But its totally worth it! Plus I believe it is a big bonus as my betta is more interested in the plants than his tank mates :) What ever keeps him busy = Less Fish death! I do notice he loves to sleep in many cracks and on top of many plants.
Plants that I have are usually ones you can get at your local pet store so it will be easy to get them. Plus all the plant in that tank are thriving! Just make sure you study on the amount of light to give each day. Also buy liquid fertilizer to help boost the plants! One I would suggest is the Aqueon brand.
I have plants such as Anubias, Anacharis, Hornwort, Java moss, Amazon swords (many types xD), Another moss that looks jelly ( not sure the actual name but next time I check the LPS Ill tell you!) and many others the I can't think of at the moment. Hope this helps you!
The lighting specs; I'm just using a normal florescent bulb for any house. ;( I'll make sure if I'll need to replace it though! It seems more than sufficient since most require moderate lighting.
