Planting Ludwigia and other questions
I know this is probably stupid but... When you guys purchase and then plant Ludwigia, do you separate each little stem? I got little bundles with maybe 5 tiny stems. I purchased 3 little bundles as it didn't seem like much. When I got home, I sort of shoved each bundle in the substrate. I didn't really separate them. This is my second try at Ludwigia, the first didn't do well but I thought it was more to do with lack of light. Anyway, what is the best way to handle that?
Next, What are your thoughts on adding a Male Betta to a tank with Guppies and a Pleco? How will the Betta do with the filter? I would have him in a medium to heavily planted 25 gallon with a dozen Guppies and a Pleco. I don't want him killing all my Guppies but if he snacked on the fry, that wouldn't be the worst. Keep the population down kind of thing. I know Betta's do not swim around that much but it just seems like the 25 would be like a paradise compared to the little cups they reside in at the petstores.
Next Question is... I purchased a tank backing and applied it with Baby Oil. It looked awesome for a long time but now is drying out and looking like crap. It is getting air bubbles. Do I A) add more oil and try to smooth it out B)scrape it off and try again Or, C) Leave it, it isn't that bad??
