On a whim, I picked up a new 2 gallon hex yesterday. Couldn't pass it up for $15. Especially when my computer desk here at home seems to have a nook in it built specifically for this tank
I want to do my first planted tank, and am going to try Java fern and moss. If they don't work out, they can always be moved to my 6g...
My questions are- being a plant newb-
1) get tank going now and cycle, then plant it? Or will the plants play a key role?
2) I'm thinking plain jane substrate will be fine... Or should I get some speciality stuff? How about a gravel/potting soil mix?
Setup will have a ~13w CF
light desk lamp over it, and will be filtered. Still debating heat, as this will be an eventual home for a new Betta...
All help very appreciated
