Hey everyone!So my first planted tank was a dirted
38 gallon and long story short all the plants melted.
I think it was a mixture of adding liquid co2,not a proper
photoperiod and to high of temperatures.
Anyway I'm going to be trying again in my 7.9
Fluval EBI nano kit and I just wanted to ask some questions so
my previous experience doesn't repeat itself.
For the substrate I was think of mixing Eco complete and black sand
since I did not like dirt and a sand cap at all(the dirt got all over the sand).
I was also going to use root tabs since I might want to get swords.
I'm not sure what the lighting is on my tank since it was given to me by someone else and it doesn't say on its description on Petco.com(it is the Fluval EBI shrimp kit)
For fertilizers I was going to use Flourish(not excel but the one that starts with
a C sorry I don't have time to look it up;).Should I use API fertilizer too?
For my plants I will definently have valliseneria,java moss and fern,Anubis and
Duckweed.Are these plants ok for my water conditions?I would like to have some
other plants as well but I do not know what else to get.I understand
that in a planted tank you need to get the right amount of floating plants,stem plants etc...What are some hardy and easily propagated plants?
For the ihabatants I will have one male betta,two nerite snails and rcs.
I think that covers it.Is this a good setup?Sorry for all the questions I'm just a beginner who really wants a nice planted tank!Also, I you guys have any tips I would greatly appreciate them.Thanks!
