I got my first 5 gallon aquarium! whooo!
I haven't set it up yet (I'm at my parents for thanksgiving) but I am SO freaking excited to!
I want to do a fairly heavily planted tank.
When cycling your tank, do you put the plants in first? Or after?
Also I worry about algae... I hear with plants comes algae. Is there a way to control it or a critter i can buy that won't be eaten or eat my little betta?
Here is list of plants I am thinking of adding.. not all of them, these are just options.
So any thoughts on these or any "OMG NO!" on any would be appreciated so I can cull my options :)
