Back story:
I have a planted 5 gallon tank that I set up almost a year ago. The only fish in there is a pea puffer. When it was my first fully planted tank. After I got the pea puffer I think a month after I got the tank I shifted my attention from the plants to the pea puffer because he wasn’t eating. So now quite a few months later the pea puffer is great at eating and is always out and about greeting me when I’m near the tank.

Questions:
The plant seem to be living but no growing much.
I’m planning on going to the store and buying some more plants. But I’m wondering if I should invest in a co2 thingy. Is it worth it? Whatcha is a good one that would work with my tank

I also put a new light on it today.

for a 5 gallon I would just invest in a bottle of thrive c and give it a squirt once or twice a week after your WC's and after you put some new plants or try to bring the existing ones back to life with some thrive c

I’m also wondering if some shrimp would do well in my setup. My little puffer isn’t aggressive at all. I don't think he would go after them. He is scared of everything.
