I have noticed that besides root tabs they sell various other liquid items in bottle form like CO2, iron, potassium, trace elements..ect. Do I need all these things?
I have API leaf zone, Aqueon Plant something and liquid CO2 plus a pack of root tabs. It was suggested that I pick up Iron for the plants I just ordered. Do different species need different minerals and such? I don't have any difficult plants, I don't think.
Bacopa Carolina <----hate this plant. Giant snails knock the leaves off
and ordered these:
Alternanthera reineckii roseafolia, colorful plant
CARDAMINE Cardamine lyrata, EASY, beginner live plant
MYRIOPHYLLUM TUBERCULATUM RED, Lush, colorful plant
Cryptocoryne parva, very easy, beautiful plant
Lilaeopsis mauritiana, MICRO SWORD, easy foreground plant
I'm giving the Myrio plant another shot. I had it and only one tiny piece survived. I left it floating and its doing GREAT. I'm wondering if it did poorly in the sand because it was lacking nutrients or because the light wasnt strong enough.
I wanted to get a bag of eco complete or whatever its called but my petco does not carry it or anything similar.
