Ordering plants for new 16g tank...
I've got my new 16 gallon tank setup yesterday! Using some kind of black with black water substrate (CaribSea Eco-Complete 20-Pound Planted Aquarium, Black). Water has some of bacteria starter (bacteria was also in the substrate). I'm ordering plants so I can get them planted this weekend, no fish for a while though. What do you think about my choices? I'm really new to this.
Here's what I'm thinking, tried to find plants that didn't get too high:
Java Fern x 2 (Bare Root)
Red Flame x 2 (Bare Root)
Dwarf Sagittaria x 1 (Potted)
Anubias hastifolia x 1 (Bare Root)
Variegated Japanese Dwarf Rush x 2 (Bare Root)
I think that will be enough. I kind of like the grassy stuff and might get some for my 5 gallon later - my betta loves to hide at night in the fake ones he has now.
The fish I want for this 16 gallon though I haven't completely decided. I am sure about shrimp (cherry and/or ghost) and a couple of snails. Tetras maybe (maybe not). What's big on my mind is a Sorority of Bettas.
Starting to think I have a tad too much. 2 Red Flames probably plenty to cover the back of the tank, maybe just 1 Java Fern instead of 2.
i vote two java ferns. you can actually tie those to your driftwood or alien skull with thread, and eventually they'll just stay on there
