So I bought some live plants this weekend. I got some anacharis. Is this a good setup for them. There is no way my fish can suffocate in them or anything right. Any tips on keeping them would be great too. So far they are doing good
I got them on Saturday. I changed their water and put in Prime. I have been doing this since today. I added them to the tank already and Im about to add in my new betta. Is that okay or should I rinse them again?
I would float the plants in a separate container for a few weeks, yeah, and change the water in your main tank. But you could wait and see if others have ideas on how you can shorten the wait time. I know how you feel! Waiting is no fun :)
Haha yeah I was all excited with my plants but I guess me and him have to wait to enjoy them. My rufio died of Ich and I dont want to go through that again. SO i would rather not risk it. Thanks for the advice
Sorry don't want to scare you but i am very paranoid with plants from the stores. That is why i am using spider plant that my mom and my friend have. One time i saw that pet store sold the plants from the same tank the fish is in. Right after that i begin to use spider plant. So i would really do what mathkid recommended. I hope it good preventative .....So sorry that you have to do it but better save then sorry.
I love his tank and i love the plant. My issue I don’t know if it enough for betta to swim freely. May be you can move them on one side a little bit. I don’t know it just me I always paranoid about something LOL.
Yeah I didnt even think about diseases until Mathkid said something. Good thing he did! I love my new little guy and don't want him to suffer from the same thing Rufio did. Should I do anything to the plants like wash with chlorox or something else. how do I know when they are ready to be put in the tank.
I know its kind of a lot of plant for a small tank. Im gonna give some of the plants to my sister who just got a betta too :)
I've got an anacharis in my 5.5 gallon. Their great plants. Be aware they are faster growers xD
I've already had to trim and plant the trimmings in my 75 gallon. Well atleast I won't be needing to buy plants for the 75 gallon/by the time we get the full hood it should be all cycled/ready for new fish.
