Fertilizer, yes or not?

Hi, My tank fish is one week old. It is a 10 gallon tank, with live plants, heater and filter.

But I am not sure of having done the things well, because I just bought silica gravel, no fertilizer and no substrates. Some friends of mine told me that there is no problem with that because the plants can grow thanks of fish´s poop and the rest of food.

what do you think?

How many plants/fish are in the tank?

Keep in mind that plants, like fish, have an adjustment period when introduced to tanks. They may look like they're sick/dying and it could just be that they're adjusting to their new home's water parameters.

I didn´t buy the plants. A friend gifted me "cuttings", I may have around 10 cuttings.

I have a Betta, 4 red cherry shrimp and a nerite snail, (in 3 weeks I will buy 5 tetras).

Please don't put tetras in with your betta - tetras are nippy little things and may not be able to resist munching on bettas pretty fins
