I already planted my plants in petco sand mixed with gravel and have dosed my tank with flourish excell..I already have a couple of yellowing plants (sword leaves), this could be due to many factors, I didnt acclimate slowly, I put dry plants into the tank and my lighting is too low (I ordered better bulbs, just waiting for them). Im also setting up a 20g long that is currently cycling, its all gravel substrate and driftwood, again neither of these tanks have a plant friendly substrate or promote growth, so im wondering will flourish tabs mixed with liquid dosing of flourish excell do the job or might I lose plants because I dont have a decent plant substrate? I have cryps, swords, ferns, anubias and unbrella plants. I also will be having moss (Qting) and I have some chainsword, hygrophilia and spirals on the way in the mail.
Im just wondering if anyone has ever had any luck with the flourish tabs before I make the investment.
Are they safe for inverts?
Also do the flourish tabs alter PH, im reading a lot of plant substrates do alter the PH, I really dont want to change my PH, its really high and I dont want any fast PH drops leading to ill fishes.
Thank you! :)
