So I'm giving up on bettas for the moment. I've got a fancy goldfish tank now and am thinking, at the moment, that I could use the 10 as a plant growout tank so I could grow some of my own food for them. I can get free duckweed all summer at one of the local garden stores(and plan to use that, but NOT in my growout tank ) and if I can get anacharis to grow well, I should be good, but I'm wondering what some good plants to try would be, and possibly what sort of equipment would work for it. I know anacharis(once I take out the heater) should be fine, ditto for water sprite, if I can find some. Right now, the tank is flourite bottomed, has an egg crate top and has 2 24" T5NO lights on it(which surprisingly don't look all that bright. They'll grow wisteria, though. I had them on my old 20 long and he wisteria seemed to think that the tank was Ceiling Cat's Land.) Also, should I take out my old flourite and replace it? The columnaris was the only disease I saw in there at all, but I might have missed something. I've still got a lot of flourite from the 20, probably enough to cover the bottom. I'd be keeping the snails and shrimp, though, that were in there. Maybe a vinegar wipedown for the walls of the tank?
