My mom's betta deserves a better life. From a neglectful sister to a failed cycle. He's in a cycled 5 gallon, only recently properly heated (using mine). I want to give him more. I want to turn his tank into a walstad tank. I don't know much about them, but they are beautiful. How do I do this the easiest? What are the easiest carpet plants?
This project will likely start this summer.

I think buying Walstad's book is a really good idea to set you on the right path, but if you can't, she has a website with articles you can find by googling her name.

I would suggest buying the book as well. I own a copy and will eventually try and set up a tank, but the method is quite specific some plants will work better than others. It also takes about 2 months to set up before you can add fish. You may also want to check out Foo the Flowerhorn's youtube channel he's done several walstad tanks Foo the Flowerhorn.
