want to have a few plants in my new aquarium
I'm starting a new betta tank soon and I was hoping to add some live plants. I already have a moss ball (because they're kind of adorable), and was thinking of java fern and anubia. The tank I'm planning to get is the Mini Bow 2.5 gal.
I was wondering what you all thought of this, and if there's anything in particular I would need to care for these plants.
I'm kind of like really new at aquarium plants, so sorry if this is a particularly stupid question, but substrate refers to the gravel layer at the bottom of the tank, right? If so, do I need to use sand or some type of soil, or is gravel okay? Are there any supplements that the plants would need?
