To pot or not?
Hi all. I have purchased plants in the past, but never one in a pot. I now have a red flame sword that I would like to put into an aquarium, and I was hoping to be able to keep it in the pot so that I can move it later if necessary. Is this realistic? Or does it really need to be removed from the pot?
Also, we always quarantine fish. I assume it's prudent to quarantine the plant as well?
Note: Most of my plants are ones that I buy from my local aquarium club for $1-3; if no one wants a plants during our monthly auction, I just bid a buck or so. That way I'm not too upset if anything dies... I'm not much with the green thumb. The substrate in my tank is just gravel, and for what I paid for the plant, it's not worth purchasing any fancy soil substrate. Like I said, I stick 'em in the tank, and sometimes I get lucky, sometimes not! I do like these: Tank Planters Large Planter 2-pack | Riparium Supply
But I'm cheap, so...
