Hi. I'm currently cycling an 18 gallon tank which has 2 ancharis, 2 anubias, 2 java fern, 2 crypt parvas, and 2 microswords. I'm planning on adding a betta. Will he provide enough bioload to keep the plants healthy?
Old salt is right. If you are worried about low nutriation of the water it is easy to fertilize with products from the lfs or online. My suggestion is ADA's green brighty 1,2, and 3. Your plants sound great.... perhaps consider a carpet such as eleocharis mini, monte carlo, or dwarf baby tear? Your betta will smile. Good luck

My plants weren't getting enough nitrogen from my betta so I started using continuum flora viv, A week later they looked great again. In a tank that big you'll probably need some fertiliser for the plants.
