I've decided that I want to get some plants for my 2.5 gallon tank. It's unfiltered and un-cycled, so I was hoping to find some plants that I could add to my tank to help keep the water clean. Any suggestions?
Also, can the plants stay out of water for a day or two? Or at least in a bag or container with water for day or two? I'm home for the weekend and my tank's in my dorm at college. There are no pet stores near my college (just a walmart), so I have to pick up all my pet supplies when I come home.
I know nothing about aquatic plants, so all advice is appreciated! Thanks!
