I'm new to aquariums and bettas in general. The little guy in my avvie is Hiko and this is my first 2.5 gal tank since keeping him in a fishbowl.
Anyway, I'd like to hear some pros and cons on keeping a planted 2.5 gal tank. I keep mine unfiltered and there is no heating (doubt it's necessary since I live near the equator but I could be wrong?).
If a fully planted tank isn't possible, what few plants can I add? I prefer light green plants but please let me know which ones are likely more to thrive and the required maintenance.
Thanks to anyone who posts.
EDIT: I only have one betta. No intention to keep anything else besides plants in a tank but let me know if certain plants will be better/more efficient with a few snails, shrimps, etc.
