Talking BEST place to buy plants!!! 10% off!!!!!!!!!!

So I just got my plants from THIS AMAZING SITE!!!!!

Planted Aquariums Central!!! <3

They have a FANTASTIC selection of plants! The owner is a wonderful woman and the customer service is fantastic!!!!

The best part of all this? I told her that she comes highly recommended (she does, you've probably seen links to this store before) here on bettafish.com and she said that she really appreciates it!

She also told me that business from bettafish.com means a lot to her so she created a code for our members to get 10% off!!!!!! :D

If you're interested in having a planted tank and you're interested in the 10% off deal OM me! =] Or if I see enough support for this I'll post the code in a comment! =]

Seriously guys! The store is awesome and she not only sells plants but fertilizers and invertebrates! =]

I was tempted to buy a dwarf orange crayfish but well... I don't really have the room and I don't know much about them! XD

But yeah! =] My plants are comin gin either Monday or Tuesday so I'll update with pics then (BECAUSE I FOUND MY CAMERA HECK YES!!!!!!!!!! >:D)! :D

Well I bought Ancharis, Watersprite, Javafern, and Anubias Coffeefolia! <3

I super excited! =] Her shipping on plants is $8.00 (or at least it was for me). I have no idea about the hard goods as I didn't buy any.

My entire order cost about $25.00. =] Not bad I'd say.

Do plants like ancharis need to be I guess "planted" in the gravel? Or can you use them as floating plants? I really want to get started with planted tanks, but just with some easy plants for starters!

puppyrjjkm:Ancharis needs to be planted but it doesn't get its nutrients from the substrate. =] It gets them from the water column. It's one of the easiest and best cleaning plants as it still grows like a weed and sucks up Nitrites and Nitrates even in very low light conditions. =]

All of the plants I got are great for beginners! =] (I'm a beginner! XD) They're all hard to kill, fast growers, and don't need special substrate. =] In fact all of them but the Ancharis can be floated. =]

In fact if you have turtles or goldfish Ancharis makes great food for them! =]

Another great type of plant to get for a beginners tank is a legit floating type of plant like duckweed, water lettuce, redroot floater, water spangles, or watermeal. =] They'll suck nitrites and nitrates right out of the water and they grow ridiculously incredifast! XD I wanted some floating plants but she wasn't selling any so I couldn't buy any. :/ Oh well. I think someone on here sells their floaters so I'll contact them about it! =]


And OFL: COOL! :D What are you thinking of buying? :D I wanted to get some creeping Jenny but my funds are limited!

Awesome! =]

WELL IF ANYONE WANTS THE DISCOUNT THE CODE IS BETTAFISH (yes it's in all-caps and you need to enter it that way. :P).

Could I keep a crayfish with a betta? Or would it try to eat a betta? D:

Marble crayfish can be hard on fish more because of the claws then really eating them....in my outside 250g I use in the summer the crays snapped off some tails of the Bettas and it took me a couple of weeks to get healing and re-growth...lol.....I think more defending themselves than anything.....marble crayfish love snails and I toss my over population of snails in my inside tank for them and marble crays will dig a planted tank up and eat the plants so a lot of my trimming go in her tank every week but I keep plain sand and oak leaf for the substrate for her and off spring...she will not eat her babies either and you only need one marble crayfish because they clone themselves...pretty cool....but they also are really dirty and stink...lol....and I get creeped out touching them so my hubby has to move the baby out when they go to market...lol.....small claws but still....and I am a country gal....laffs.....you have keep the lid tight or they will escape and dry up and die and really creepy seeing one walking across the floor in the dark....lol.....

wallywestisthebest333: Thanks for the great info. So you said they don't need any special substrate. So they don't need plant fertilzer or I guess the liquid for plants too? (sorry don't know what it's called!) Those are plants I've been looking for! What kind of lighting do they need though?
