Anubias barteri/planted tank question from newbie
So, I am very new to this whole aquarium experience, and I have just set up a 5.5g tank that I am cycling. Literally all I have in it is substrate (gravel) and a filter. Today at the lfs I picked up an anubias barteri var. nana and then realized I had no idea how to plant it in my aquarium. After doing some research, I determined that most people attached it to something in the tank such as driftwood or rocks. Not having either of those, I also found a couple people who just "planted" it in the substrate, so that's what I did, I stuck it in the gravel and weighed it down so it didn't float up. I guess my question is, did I do the right thing? Does anyone else have this plant and if so, how do you go about introducing it, or other plants into the tank? Also, it's quite small, with about three small pieces that I ended up with.
Thanks for reading!
