    Hello!

    Just wanted some tank specific recommendations Just whatever you think would fit. Also, note this isn't a "what are plants what should I do" post, it's more just a "hey, I could see some __ going right by that rock ".

    Some general info:

    Getting plants Monday
    Tank is still cycling
    10g
    Ph is 7.4 atm
    Thrive fert (low-tech)
    No CO2
    Beamswork 20" LED (2.0 wpg)
    Will be getting just a betta

    Possible plant list:
    Java fern
    Anubias (nanas or anything else)
    Moneywort
    Pennywort
    Bacopa
    Hygrophila polysperma
    Crypts; not sure which species though

    Thank you for the suggestions, hopefully I'll be able to find them at my LFS!

    ~Robin

    I would put some kind of crypt between some of the rocks on the left and maybe some small anubias near the front on the left. You could tie some moss (perhaps Christmas moss or flame moss?) on the wood. I might also stick some stem plants on the right hand side. That's just me though. I find bettas really benefit from floating plants, some frog bit or dwarf water lettuce would look cool.

    Just a quick note, Hygrophila polysperma is illegal in the entire United States. Nice tank though!

    Anubias is the best. I had it tied to some drift wood. As its getting bigger, my betta loves to swim through the leaves and roots. Maybe some java fern for the back of the tank?

    I personally like hornwort as a background plant

    Crypt wendtii Bronze/Brown
    Crypt spiralis
    Hygrophila corymbosa
    Dwarf sag
    Java fern "Windelov"
    Anubias nana
    Red tiger lotus

    All these would do fine in this setup while adding different colors and textures.

    Just an Update, I got the plants!

    What I got:
    Crypt. spiralis
    Anubias nanas
    Anubias lanceolata
    Anubias coffeefolia

    Unfortunately they didn't have any wendtiis and the java ferns were looking a little janky but maybe another time. It's kinda hard to fit a lot in a 10g tbh and I'm kinda locked in until after my college years (a long time). I'll get the 55g freshwater community tank of my dreams some day lol
