I am very interested in trying soil, and I have watched a few videos about it on youtube. I was troubled about the CO2 idea because I don't know that it would work for this tank unless I bought 5 separate units as the 5 compartments don't share water. Maybe I could use CO2 in 2 of the sections and not in the others.
I looked at the aponogetons and though all varieties of it were beautiful, they each seemed to have something challenging about them! One has to be removed for part of the year when it's dormant, another hasn't been successfully propagated in tanks yet and has to be gathered from the wild, etc. I DO want to try something challenging, but maybe I'll do that one in a few months, lol.
I found both a green and a reddish version of Proserpinaca and put both in my cart at aquariumplants.com! Is this one that would do best in soil?
I am attaching a picture that represents the tank except as to size and the fact that there is no top on mine, plus for some reason there is a hole drilled in the back of each of the tanks. The one I've attached is a little betta tank, but mine is basically 4 10-gallon tanks and 1 20-gallon tank stuck together, or so I figure by the dimensions.
