I set up a 5 gallon tank for a new betta I got a couple days ago I would love to plant it! But I'm totally new and totally lost I've read up on easy plants like the ones listed here:
http://aquariadise.com/8-easy-aquarium-plants/

Also, the tank I have my betta in is the 5 gallon Glofish tank. I had Glofish in it but I moved them to a 10 gallon when I purchased my 25 gallon. I had a spare hood from a 1 gallon tank and put it on top of the 5 gallon instead of the blue LED it came with. It actually lights it up very nicely Although I'm concerned that the light is not suitable for plants... I wanted to get some hardy low light, low maintenance plants that would grow in gravel (if that's possible, idk). You can pm me if you have any good websites or tips or anything Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hope to get a coat of clear on the canopy top I made for the 90 gallon community tank and a quick water change on my QT tank. Yardwork first since more rain is in the forcast. Going to be a busy night but still much better than holding the couch down.

Had quite a wc day:/ spilled I don't know how much water and the plastic gas station cup that I use to get the water into my bucket cracked. But I'm going to the LFS tonight, so if I do get any fish, I'll be sure to let y all know.

changed filter media on the 46 bow, 29 gallon and the 10 gallon grow-out.

water change on the 46 bow, and also started my rescape. been soaking/rinsing some mopani wood for over a month. I decided to remove all of my live plants, the colored fake plants look real nice, especially when the neon school are swimming about. my discus are a bit confused tho lol

moved the angels out of the 20H and back to the 55. my mating pair that's in the 55 will probably go in the 10 gallon for mating purposes. Maybe. the fish in the growout will go in the 20H when I do a WC/gravel vac and filter media change. then they will go to mom's 75.
