No worries, I have not picked up plants yet. I have a list of what I was adviced to buy:

water sprite
brazil swords

thats about it.

I have a few betta fish that i've had for a few months in "fake" tanks. I just got into the whole planted tank look. The tank I'm experimenting with is a 5.5 gallon Marina kit so it does come with a filter. I have already rinsed the flourite and it wasn't that bad honestly the water is a bit cloudy but not as bad as I thought. I know about the nitrogen cycle, but not in regards to real plants. I've heard that it happens on its own and that there isn't much you should do. Is that right? I'm sorry there are so many contradicting things i keep hearing so I'm not sure how to go about this. I would like to get the plants tonight since I'll be around my LFS area and would save me the time and gas lol. If i'm correct these plants are low light/maintenance. I've done a bit of research but like I said there is so much advice.
