Re: [APD] first month
while some nitrogen in the form of nitrates will be the final bi product of
the nitrification cycle that your bacteria produce, the plants can use
the N much easier in the form of ammonia ie NH4 ie FISH WASTE.
see previous post for suggestions as to fish species.
as far as the snails are concerned, sounds like you got some pond snails.
look on line for some descriptions.
IMHO The best snail species for planted tanks are the Nerites. Their
mandible(?) is not strong enough to damage healthy leaves but is strong enough
to clean algae off of all surfaces including leaves.
I dont think you have apple snails as they would have eaten all of the
plants by now.
