I'm going to ask a somewhat stupid question... So bear with me...
My schedule until april, is looking mighty insane... And my 55g Discus tank
is getting somewhat neglected; which I really need to do something about.
3-4 water changes a week are almost impossible right now.
So I'm wondering, what plants could I add to help keep the
nitrates/phosphates levels to a minimum between water changes.
The tanks current setup is a 30/70 flourite/gravel substrate, 80-160w of NO
flourescent (2 40w fixtures - usually run 80w but 160 is available),
temperature is 84F, kh 80mg/L gh 160mg/L. For the time being, I'd rather
keep away from CO2 (the discus are still younger - trying to keep the water
conditions as stable as possible).
Right now I've got some hygrophilia polysperma "sunset" in there - along
with a couple crypt wendtii. Growth isn't bad; but the recent BGA outbreak
set them back a ways...
Thanks in advance,
