New to plants, but not to tanks...
Hello guys... I have been lurking and watching this mail-list for a couple
of weeks. I am NEW to the live plant world, but not new to tanks. I have
always had artificial plants in my tanks before, but have started to plant
Live plants to liven up my tank.
My questions are as follows:
I am curious about what I need to do to keep a couple of Amazon
Swords and some Hygrofilia (sp?) flourshing well. I have been reading alot
about fertilizers and substrate, but am very new to the live plants arena.
I would like to get as much help as possible. Here is the tank specifics:
29gal freshwater tank. PH 6.8, Temp 76degrees
1 Tri-Lux Flouresent light tube
Aquaclear 300 Filteration system
I large piece of Driftwood
Black small gravel bottom
The following fish are kept in this tank:
4 Angels (Veil and non-Veil)
2 Opaline Gourami's
4 Black Skirt Tetras
1 Khuli Loach
1 Yo-Yo Loach
At this time, I don't want to have to add additional lighting. I was
wondering if anybody can help me with understanding the fertilization of my
plants and also what I need to add/do to the tank to insure that they grow
healthy and strong.
I will use this information to assist with my 2 10gal tanks also.
Thanks in advance,
