What size is the tank, Sherry? What fish are in it? Also, how much watts do your lighting have? Elodeas, hornworts, vallisnerias, Java moss, Nymphaea lotus and Cabomba are a few I can mention quite easy to grow.8)

Well I haven't ventured out that far yet. to have a lot of fish. I'm new with the fish thing.. I have one betta in a big vase, with just rocks, I have a desk lamp that is close to the vase which is keeping it pretty toasty... he seems happy just lonely and bored..

get it a 5 gal tank with a little heater and filter. add a power compact screw in bulb over the top. you will be able to have a nice little jungle and the betta will sure like the space.

Hey thanks for the names of plants! I wouldn't have known what to look for , I actually went and got a Melon Sword, He seems very Happy now, But I think I have created a monster.. heheh He never seemed like he would react when I got close to the tank before Now since he has stuff in his home to be proud of or protect He bucks at me as soon as I sit down in my chair next to him.... :) Which brings me to a question.... when they flare up to fight, those things that hang from the bottom of his chin.. are they suppose to flare too? his just hangs
