Betsy Posted January 21, 2021 Share Posted January 21, 2021 (edited) Hi friends! I am suuuuper new to the hobby! I blame my high school students for my interest...they randomly bought me a betta fish about two years ago. Unfortunately, he became ill and died about a month ago...and I miss him and the joy he brought to the classroom. I'm trying to start and maintain a planted tank to create a better environment for a future classroom fish...maybe I can get our next betta to live for five years instead of just two! I planted a tank yesterday with some plants I bought at the Co-Op! You'll have to let me know how I did...the pile of rocks is on the driftwood because I couldn't get it to sink. I'm sure I'll be searching the forum for tips...hopefully, I can keep the plants looking this great! Any advice is very welcomed! I have no idea what I'm doing, and I'm fighting the urge to try too hard! It's a 5 gallon Marina tank (one of those kit things with the Slim 10 filter), Fluval Stratum, some driftwood, quartz river rocks, and a smattering of plants (Windelov Java Fern, Golden Anubias, Nana Petite Anubias, Coffeefolia Anubias, and Red Melon Sword).
