fuckingunderthesheets asked: Hey! I was just wondering could you recommend some plants for an angel tank with a bristlenose plec in it too I'm looking for some tall plants that the angels could hide in and maybe some plants that will form a carpet across the substrate, the substrate I have is sand. I'm at a bit of a loss cos I don't know much about plants so I need easy ones to take care of. Thank you!
Amazon Swords, anacharis, hornwort, valisneria, for tall, chain swords, hairgrass, for short. If you are just using sand, you will have to be sure to fertilize with root tabs. Also plants tend to have a hard time carpeting on sand because it is so fine. Good Luck and be sure to post some pics.
Anonymous asked: Hi! So I was wondering if maybe you could give me some advice. I have six bettas in their own separate tanks, and I'm really interested in researching the concept of walstad fully-planted tanks. Does your book cover all of that, like what substrates to use that are safe, etc? I would essentially like to get them heavily planted so that cleaning them would be extremely easy. But also, I'm in college, and I don't know as something like that has any efficient way of transportation.
Yes, my book does cover Low-tech tanks and substrates like Walstad uses. If your betta tanks are small enough to easily transport drained, I would just siphon the water out and leave the plants planted in the substrate. They should be fine as long as they stay moist. You could just bring a spray bottle and mist them for time to time if you are going for a long distance. I hope this helps.

Anonymous asked: hi I was wondering if there Is some sort of plant capacity for a 10 gallon tank?
I wouldn’t say that there is a set number of plants that you can have. I would recommend setting your tank up how you like, but know that some plants may die while others will reproduce and spread. If plants start to get too big and overcrowded you can always trim them or remove some. Hope that helps. Good luck and be sure to share your photos and experiences.
