livebearers & plants?
I recently set up a 30 gal tank with the main purpose of propagating Java
fern and possibly some crypts. This is a relatively low-tech tank with 2
30W Vita-lites, an Aquaclear 200 and a Fluval 3 (for water movement). I haven't
added any fish yet.
My husband has long wanted to have some livebearer's, probably guppies
and/or platys. Will I have trouble creating conditions acceptable to both
the fish and the plants? How soft can the water be for livebearer's? I have
read that mollies are good for cycling a plant tank--do you ever put salt in
for the fish--I wouldn't think the plants would like it much. Thanks for any
