question about duplaplant
I was in the middle of setting up my new 50 gallon tank with
laterite, disolving the plant stimulator tablet in a glass of water to
pour it in the gravel; when I spilt the glass. Recovered some but the
dupla plant tablets got wet so I put them in a glass of with some
residual water and sealed it with plastic rap. Well later that day my son
was born, (shameless how I worked that in no?) and the duplaplant has
been sitting in the glass for over a week now. The water is brown with a
some of the tablets still intact. What do I do? Pour this in when I add
the water or do I have to buy 10 more tablets.
Secondly, when I set this whole thing up with lots of fast
growing plants (suggestions welcome) do I put the 6 SAE's and 6 Otto's
that I have been saving in immediately or wait a week or so. My concern
is that a newly set up tank won't have that much in the way of algae will it?
I'd hate to lose the SAE's as they were a lucky find recently in a pet
store that doesn't know any better and was selling them as flying foxes
for $1.20 each!!
Any suggestions apprecitated
