Totally Planted Newbie, setting up a 2.5gal Betta Tank
While I've been raising fish for most of my life, I have never one attempted a planted tank. I currently have only a betta, and would like to upgrade his large critter keeper into a 2.5gallon planted tank.
I'm buying the tank later this week, and would love any help I could getting it set up. When I buy the tank, I will also be scoping out what kinds of plants the local petsmart has.
I don't think I want to mess with CO2 for this tank, so low tech, plants are required.
What supplies should I be looking at? Are any plants not safe for bettas? (Besides the obvious of spiky plants)
What kind of lighting would be best?
Could this be done for under a budget of $75?
