Stratum will actually lower your pH, so if you do use that, at least you'll expect to see that drop now.i guess u people r right, time to find a new store or at least not take advice from them... they sold me on the fluval substrate and said to at least put it under the eco to balance the ph. anyway, u live and learn
Not true at all! I've had numerous bettas in planted tanks over the years, and none of them ever touched the plants. I don't know where they are getting their info from.LFS said not to do it bc bettas will pull the plants out of substrate...have you guys known this to be true? wanted to do some baby tears on the ground and some bacopa and stuff along the back wall
I have currently 8 bettas (1 is my husband's) in planted tanks (each have their own tank) and absolutely no issues with them and plants. They are a PERFECT fish for solo fish/smaller planted tanks!! Which is why I have so many >.>''LFS said not to do it bc bettas will pull the plants out of substrate...have you guys known this to be true? wanted to do some baby tears on the ground and some bacopa and stuff along the back wall
You mean with a betta? Every betta's personality is different, some tolerate tank mates fine, some won't.. and will aggressively hunt and kill anything else in the tank with them. If you try putting a betta with other fish, get the other fish and put them in the tank first, then introduce the betta (if betta goes in first, its more likely to think it owns the tank for itself and not want to share), but be ready to remove one or the other if the betta stalks/attacks.great info thank you. how about small schooling fish like fancy guppies and neon tetras. would they jive together?
