So I was retarded and started getting plants without doing my research. I threw together my tank with bacopa which I've read needs substrate. I'm not sure about the 'frill' I got from petsmart, as well. I've also got some longer grasses, which I forget the name of.
I've read my java fern is fine, though.
As far as substrate goes...is any fine? Looks like petsmart doesn't have much choice. I like the ones I'm seeing at petco.com a little better.
Any other advice on a planted tank? Do I really need CO2? Can I go without? Should I just let the bacopa die and leave my tank with plants that don't need substrate?
Ugh. :l Just need some advice. Definitely a novice.
