I have these two plants currently.
I don't have the names of them, as when I bought them they were just put in a bag with a number code written on it for the cashier.
I bought them from petsmart when I bought the tank, which is a 5 gallon Aqueon Mini Bow with a filter and an LED light.
These plants came recommended by the fish dude at petsmart as beginner's plants. He says they don't need much caring for, so they will be good for me to start out with.
Now my question is, should I actually be doing anything with them? I have now had them for 6 days, and the one on the right in the picture is starting to have a few leaves turning brown at the tips.
Should I have a different light at the top of the tank? The LED surely doesn't provide much to the plants, or does it?
A user on reddit in /r/bettafish said something about buying "Flourish" which she says is a plant fertalizer.
Would either of those be necessary? so far the plant still looks like it's quite alive, just with some browning at the tips of some of the leaves.
I'd like to keep these plants alive but I just don't know enough about them.
