I will get some better plants eventually. The plants I have now came with ou other tank. Although we used similar plants with our other betas with no problems for years. But what you said makes sence. They are sharp! I got a small papercut from one last night.

As you can see from my new avatar I got some silk plants today.







I'm going broke lol!

I do like the silk plants, the one seems large for the tank but should give the Betta some good hangout spots nearer to the top of the tank.

Come to think of it now everything in my tank now is brand new except for the gravel.

That must be terrible!!

And what a coincidence -- I have both ofthose plants!!
BUT BEWARE of the smaller one... those greenish things from the roots? They can scratch a betta's tail too. Just put it in the gravel and it should be okay, lol.

What's terrible the paper cut? It's just a little cut not the end of the world :p it just proved your point well.

I thought about the roots also, I'll bury it a bit more.

I think I'm going to get my beta later today!

Ph is 7.4-7.5 (using bullseye 7.0) (our tap is 8.4 here)

Temp: 75-76*f

Gh: 10 *dh (176 ppm) (according to my most recent water quality report from my city, I need to purchase a dh tester!)

The plant with the roots has been buried more.

Pump, filter, and heater all seem stable!

Good! Acclimate him nicely!

I hate paper cuts in general, I use my fingers a LOT. (Piano, violin, homework...) so for me, paper cuts are classified as "terrible". Lol
