Exclamation Planted?? I need HELP!!!

Hi I just rescued a betta from Meijers yesterday, he is now living in my Aqueon evolve 8 Gallon with the Led light it came with. It is really more of a 6.5 gallon with the built in filter in the back. I usually put a sponge on the filter output and more sponges behind the intake of the filter cause i noticed the curent was running very fast. I have recently thought about using sand instead of gravel, and wanted to use some Live plants. I curently only have 1 moss ball, and a few live plants. i also wanted to incourrperate a clay pot in as well. Can anyone give me some advice on some beginer plants? Is my Led light ok for plants? I really like the moss that floats on the top ( saw it in a few pics on-line) anyone know what that is?? Thank you!

You can put a clay pot in, just wash it. For some beginner plants; anubus, java moss, jace fern, and christmass tree moss. They are all impossible to kill plants. But make sure to tie them to something. some plants that you can get for floaters are duckweed, frogbit, or dwarf water lettuce.

If you just get those plants no. I dont know what jacks pets is, and usually petsmart people have no idea what they are talking about. Just post all your questions here or PM me and I will answer them if you want.

There are non of those stores around me. But i would say get the ones at your lfs or even take some from outside and boil them. But i used the some shell pack at michaels for my shell dweller tank, (boiled them) and all is good. So if you want get them. But to answer your question, I dont know.
