Hi from Tennessee!

Hi, everyone! I'm in the process of cycling my 5.5 Top Fin tank after losing my boy, Eclipse. I'm using Seachem Stability daily until I build up the bio-filter. I've got one anubisa Nana in the tank now, and I plan on adding more as I go along. I've never hadva planted tank before so I'm a bit nervous about doing something wrong. If I do, will you please kindly let me know so I can fix it?

Hi Songbird! Welcome to the forum and welcome to planted tanks :) Anubias is a great plant to start with. They are hardy and don't have strong lighting requirements. Stability is a great product! I use it any time I add new fish to the tank for a week or if I have to do a large water change. What type of betta do you plan to add? Let us know if we can help with any plant questions as well. So do you also like songbirds? I love watching backyard birds. Always exciting to hear of another betta fan in TN. I am from Knoxville :)

Every fish deserves a Chance

Hi Songbird. Anubias is a good start. They are hardy as mentioned. You got 5.5g and a lot more space to plant. You can try out other hardy plants like java fern, amazon swords and moss... All these are easy and hardy plants to plant. Have fun 😉
