I keep a lot of fish, and almost all the tanks have live plants and this is mainly because nothing can look better than what nature has made. Well that and because artificial plants are just.. you know what I mean.
So I recently set up a Nano Tank for my 'Plakat Betta' fish and I wanted to keep it simple. I didn't want to spend a lot on lighting and other things. So here's what I did.
|Sorry for the picture quality and ignore the CO2 drop checker to the left I took it out later.|
So to keep things simple I used simple sand for the substrate. As for the plants, I have a low tech setup, So I used Java fern. Java fern has great colour and its just impossible to kill. Small Piece of driftwood and voila!
Tie your java fern to the driftwood or maybe some rocks, and you're done. Its simple, easy, looks really good and doesn't burn a hole in your pocket.
Other plants that you can use with low light are 'Anubias, Amazon Swords, Java Moss, and Some Valisnera Sp. etc. '
