[APD] Low Maintenance
I am going to be setting up a low light, no CO2, 10 gallon planted tank for
myself pretty soon. I had to get rid of my 75 because I injured my knee and
am looking at a 6 month recovery time. But I want to have a tank around the
house, so something I am capable of doing a water change on is in order.
I was planning to go with a flourite substrate, but I just read the Tom Barr
article where he talks about a low light no-CO2 system with organic matter
(like leonardite) in the substrate, and thought that I could do that also.
But I don't have any tanks currently, since I just got rid of my 75, so I
don't have any mulm to add to the substrate. I was thinking of trying that
bio-spira stuff to cycle the tank, but I'm guessing there is other bacteria
in mulm that is beneficial.
Is added mulm a necessary part of the substrate, or will the leonardite
still be beneficial even without the mulm?
