I just upgraded my betta's (Fawkes) tank from a 5.5 gallon to a 10 gallon tank and am looking for some guidance. This is my first time with live plants (besides marimos) and I've already screwed it up a bit. I picked the plants (an Amazon Sword and an Anubias barteri) up while away over night and just plopped them into a vase for the night, thinking that they'd be fine until I got them back to the tank. Lol they're not called aquatic plants for nothing-- the Anubias was fine because it was fully submerged but the Amazon Sword looks a little rough now (oops). Anyways, I clearly have no idea what I'm doing with regards to these plants. I was originally going to do a bare bottom tank and had planned to weigh the plants down by tying them to some heavy stones. However, I didn't like the look, so I put some gravel in that I had on hand and "planted" them. Do you think this will work? Is there a better way to plant them? Also, are root tabs necessary for these types of plants? Thanks for the help!
