That is what he said !
But the plants too do consume oxygen too BTW -> when they do photosynthesis to prepare food for themselves.

But point taken -> I always liked the idea of having a live plant in my tank and without this forum , I would have never given it a thought.
Whatever I was asking the PETCO guy , he was sating my tank was too small I was like , Yeah I know that , tell me something new

But you guys have been great help ! Hopefully my tank will be cycled soon and I will get my dear betta

Thanks you once again !

Peas are great to help all fish (if they eat it) with digestion. Frozen peas are great--nuke them, peel them, serve! When I serve peas to my fish, that is all they get for the day.

I agree with Menagerie -- peas are the only food the fish get that day. Swanandmokashi, you're going to do great with your betta!
