Tropical Fish for biOrb Tanks

Biorb fish tanks and water plants

I went to the pet store a month or so ago to purchase some water plants and a betta fish. I wanted to try growing a small water garden. While there I found this Biorb fish tank. It looked really cool and I decided I’d try my experiment in that.

I’ve never had much luck with fish tanks and I’ve never tried water gardens before so this is all new.

The first betta settled in well, the plants were doing so-so. I thought he might like a bit of company so I brought him a female. She promptly ate him.

Back to the store for betta #3 who is still doing quite well, it’s been about 4 weeks.

It’s been two years now and I’ve found there are three things that seem to make a huge difference in how well the aquarium plants do:
1) Change the water frequently

Tetra's are tropical fish

They should have a consistant temperature around 74 - 78 degrees. You can get away without a heater if your room temperature is always in that temperature range, but you're better off with the heater. If something happens to drop the temperature more than a degree or two in a short period of time the fish could get sick, but if the change is very gradual it won't affect them that badly as long as it doesn't get too cold.
(I have a 55 gallon tropical fish tank currently running without a heater. The reason is that the temperature here has been over 100 degrees for the past I don't know how long and I can't even get my air conditioner to cool my house below 85
