Help "choosing plants/setting up" first planted tank 2.5g
I'm starting my first tank. I found a very nice glass 2.5g one that I plan to buy sometime next week.
My priority in the new tank are my betta and marimo (claudophora aegopropila) who are currently sharing a tank a little over 1g.
I'll probably add some riccia for the carpet and either elodea crispa or elodea/egeria densa in the back. I'm aiming for a low light aquarium so that the plants don't overgrow the tank too quickly, though I'm aware I will probably have to do some clipping more often than not.
My question is, are the plants I'm choosing ok with the marimo or will they steal too many nutrients from it? destroy it if it rolls around? the marimo is my favorite aquatic plant/algae and I don't want the rest to kill it off. Should I choose something else? if so, what do you suggest?
With such a small tank I'm also guessing adding CO2 will be unnecessary?
Honestly, besides what I've read around, I don't know the first thing about planted tanks, so any help or tips, would be a huge help.
