Smile Live Plants

I know this is probably on here somewhere in the mass amounts of posts but I figured that I do one anyways.

What kind of live plants can you have in a tank? I see some pics with Bettas and Bamboo, regular flowers... you know the ones they keep in vases!

What is a good live plant for a 10 gallon community tank?

Thanks in advance!

I have the amazon sword, green wendtii crypt, and dwarf hairgrass. But honestly, it more depends on the wattage of your light. Some plants need low to moderate light. Others need moderate to high. So, I found at my LFS they told me what I could use with my wattage, and they are doing great so far...especially the green wendtii crypt.

First: you don't have room with one betta.
Second: Never EVER put bettas together in the same tank unless breeding.

One betta should have at least 2.5 gallons of water/space to them self.

Some yes...but from what I've heard most of the time they don't do well together unless together since fry.

Tara, how many watts of light does the tank get? Are you prepared to add fertilizer once or twice a week? Those are the main factors when considering what kind of plants to get.

In my 5.5 gallon I have Anubias Nana, Anubias Barteri, green cabomba, wendtii crypt, brazilian pennywort, Valisneria spiralis (spiral vals), dwarf hair grass and a moss ball.

Here is Zeus' tank with all of that.:


I have a 10w compact flourescent bulb in an architechts desk lamp over the tank and fertilize twice a week with my water changes.

2 females in a smaller tank won't work. You need at least 4 females in a 10 gallon or larger with lots of plants and hiding places. Females are aggressive too.
