Alright so I think Im just going to take the Amazon swords out and get some more ferns and other small plants that dont have a big root system. If I got 1 more fern what else should I get?

My bettas-
1 Crown Tail Male- Star
1 Crown Tail Male Solid Red Blue Iridescent- Fuji

I believe any of the stem plants will work as they do not have extensive root systems just be forward most of them grow very tall but they are very easy to trim and either replant to make more plants or you can just throw them out or give them/sell them to other people.

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

Personally, I would just buy some flourish and add some more gravel to the back... Or pot the swords in a small clay pot filled with gravel. (Or even Organic Choice potting soil topped with gravel)

All plants need proper nutrients, and that liquid fertiliser from Tetra probably won't cut it.

Some easy plants that might do well without a good fertiliser are Anubias, Hygrophila, Java moss, Java fern...

They'd do even better with flourish, however.
