"GREAT START for a planted tank" The Beginner's Planted Aquarium Combo
Beginners Listen Up. This combo is for you. If you are a pro and you know it all, buy plants individually or see what I have shaking with the higher level combos. (Golden Touch Combos are here) IF not: Dear Billy Beginner, I love beginner's because everyone was one at some point and if you get off to a good start you will soon have multi-tank-itis. ( A great problem many planted tank people have) But if you are looking at me for a beginner's planted combo; I am going to keep it super easy for you. These combos are easy plants and will make it so you have success right out of the gate.
Don't ask me if you can swap in plants on a beginner combo. You can't.
If you want specific plants, get them, I sell a crap load of them. IF YOU WANT TO TRUST ME TO HOOK YOU UP WITH PLANTS THAT WONT DIE- THIS COMBO IS FOR YOU. Sincerly, Dustin DustinsFishtanks Beginner planted tank combos are 5 different species of plants that are hardy-that's it. ---I pick them, not you.
A Beginner Planted Tank Combo comes with everything you need to get started....
10 Stems of Jungle Val 5 Stems of Dwarf Sag 5 Stems of Bacopa Monnieri 5 Leaves on a Java Fern 1 Anubias with over 5 leaves And... the most valuable part... Dustin's Dirted Tank Question ..and a few FishtankTV stickers. (images of all of it up soon!) All for 49$ plus shipping. Start your tank off right from the start. Start off with a beginners planted tank combo. (You can always add more and different plants later, but this is how you get started)
NOTE: I reserve the right to slightly alter this and all beginner combos based on supply at the time...but they will be hardy plants regardless.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being plants that can grow in your Toilet) (10 being near impossible) THESE ARE ALL LEVEL 1 to 3 Plants :)
We believe in starting with EASY AQUARIUM PLANTS.... having success and moving on to more advanced once you have momentum.
Plants all arrived in great shape. Would not have been able to pick out same quality of plants at a Fish or pet store. Made shopping easy.
I have 2 African Dwarf Frogs in a tiny 5.5 gal tank; I want to make them happier, but I kept killing plants. I did an internet search to figure out what I was doing wrong... and I found Dustin's Fishtanks! I am *so* glad that I did! I've learned an incredible amount about this hobby and Dustin's enthusiasm got me, and my kids, excited about aquascaping. (My kids go around the house saying "What's up fishtank people" when they hear Dustin's voice. Haha!)
I have a very hectic life so I have to do things small steps at a time but I finally have a 29 gallon dirted tank with good substrate, and I've jump started the cycling process. Yesterday I got my first (I say first as I will be back!) order from DFT. I let my 8 y.o. daughter do a mini YouTube-style unboxing video but I'll spare you and just post photos. lol
I had high expectations from the reviews I've read on here and still I am blown away at the quality and variety of plants. Dustin just had 2 back-to-back shows, which I didn't think about when I made my order, but there was no nonsense of "we're on backorder" or whatnot. Nope. What I got was a "Hey, we're going to give you a good variety of plants!" I got NINE varieties of plants, people, and I couldn't be happier! I hope I identified them all correctly. I got:
7+ Jungle Val, 11 Dwarf Sag, Rotala Macranda Small Leaf, Bacopa Caroliniana "Yellow Flame", Anubias Afzelii (and a round driftwood ball to tie it to!), a large bunch of E. debumbens, 2 bundles of Cryptocoryne Spiralis, Cabomba Caroliniana, and a sprouted Tiger Lotus bulb. Its Christmas in October; the only thing missing is a partridge in a pear tree.
The whole bunch was wrapped in wet newspaper and protected in an air filled and sealed bag and shipped priority mail. I don't think there can be a better way to ship live aquatic plants! 10 out of 5 stars!
Also pictured: a few cheap local plants to test my driftwood tying.
Concerned about snails? 5% bleach solution and rin...
Everything came super quick and properly packaged. I also recieved more than I thought I would get lol Thanks Dustin!
The plants came packaged very well and were in great shape. There were definitely some extras in there!! I ended up putting some in another tank, it filled up my 15 gallon fluval flex quickly.
These plants are great! I bought the starter setup with a few extras. Plus I got the potassium, CO2 , plant booster and the iron. The plants have really grown!! I’m so happy with my tank :D just love it
I just got home from being in the hospital for a month and lost a few fish not too many Plants still doing good. Just need some TLC But the plants still going strong!
