I know some people use fishing line, or I believe nylon cord. Its only supposed to be temporary until the roots of the plant take hold, but I'd be worried about the fishing line harming/cutting the fish and I'm not sure on the nylon cord... I used fishing line to make a shelf for some floating QT tanks and its relatively cheap for a big roll of it.

I have used both undyed cotton and fishing line. As long as the line is tied tightly enough, it won't hurt the fish.

Ok, thanks! I am pretty sure I have fishing line somewhere, so I will use that! And no, the betta is not in there yet.

I really like the black substrate with the red rock against it. Makes it really stand out!

I rearranged the tank, and took away the bulky tree, he seems to like it a lot more. I also have marimo balls on the way that i can't wait to add.

To avoid what happened to me and my marimo I would suggest very closely examining your marimo before adding it to the tank and possibly salt treating it for worms. I had a HUGE planarian outbreak after I put mine into the tank and had to deep clean my tank :/ it really sucked. If you quarantine I would recommend you do it for a week because the worms didn't infest the tank, bad enough for me to notice, until a week after I put the marimo in. But a salt treatment will treat the plant right away and make it safe to add to the tank much sooner.

I plan on quarantining them for two weeks before i put them in my tank. Thank you for the warning though, i would definitely not want to clean worms out of my tank. I'm waiting for some driftwood to soak for the next two weeks so I'm learning to be patient with what i put in my tank. :)
