I'm not really a newbie to bettas, I have had them for years. I am, however, a newbie to live plants. I can't keep them alive! I used to have cactus and bamboo, the supposedly "no-care" plants, but I've always killed them. However, last year when I got Goomba (RIP), I decided to try putting bamboo in his tank. Well, nearly a year later and the bamboo is still going strong. I don't even do anything to it, just rinse the roots gently when I clean the tanks.
Now, I've been curious about getting more live plants for my 2.5 gallon tank that has Cheep-Cheep in it. Not a ton, because, obviously, it's a 2.5 gallon. (The bamboo is in a 1-gallon.) I was thinking about a moss ball, but I wasn't sure how that would work. What are your experiences with them? Are they a good idea? How do I need to take care of them? (Clearly I'm paranoid about killing plants, I do not have a good track record!)
