Query: I bought some "Flourish" plant food (liquid) from seachem for my water wisterias, is that okay? I don't know if it's some crazy hardcore plant food that will make my plants sentient or something XD
i fot 1 bunch of anacharis today, put most of it in the 2.5g and 1.5 stalks in the 1 gal. it works wonders to eat ammonia, removed .35ppm within a few hours. how often would i still need to change the water for the fish and the plants sake in the one gallon? do i stick with the 100 and 50 the other day or can i extend it to 2 full days between a 100wc?
shat options are there to make you own silk plants? more specifically i have the silk leaves and a possible substitute for a stem. the issue is a plant foot to bury it under the gravel. would lead eventually leach?
Bahamut, if you dose correctly, it ought to be fine, I've heard a lot of great things about it. if necessary you can adjust how much you add. I am considering getting it, let me know how it goes~ :D
Nel, the purpose of water changes is to keep the ppms of the ammonia and nitrites under .25 ppm at pretty much all times if possible, so if there is .25 or more, you'd still have to do the water changes. If not, continue monitoring the water quality until you can determine a new water change schedule. However, IMO, you should still do the water changes, they certainally can't hurt.
okay...cause it seems like my anubias is trying to avoid the ornament :p
do the roots pull themselves toward the fake driftwood and attach? mine seem to be growing outward and away
It'll send some out like that, yeah. Tame them with MOAR thread! lol! It will need time, but eventually, it will begin to stick.

but anyways, does anyone know a safe way to remove gravel with snails in it? by saying safe i mean as in safe for the snails in it. i have ramshorn snails in my gravel, and id hate to kill them just becuase i changed my gravel..
Pick each one out, thats really the only way. If you can wait, put a piece of blanched cucumber or something in there and wait for them to get on it and remove them with it, like bait.

No one's wrong when everyone's right. Now just answer questions, gogogo~
Sorry about the definition link... I screwed up somewhere.
him/her and betta are both longer than it, that's why I chose not to use them.

Until the fish is brought home and a bond is formed... to me its just a fish. I want to separate myself and not identify with it until I know it will survive. Using a term like "it" helps me to keep that distance. This is done to protect myself.
I've heard the Beiber joke so many times its rather old now... sorry.
Well, it depends on what you want from it. If you want a cycled tank, then I honestly suggest getting sponge filter media. If you are going for an uncycled tank but want the added benifits of the filter, I'd just say get those carbon filter pads.
The pros of the carbon is that it helps maintain the water quality just a bit better until you have to do your water change, but the cons would be that you have to replace them every few weeks, and the costs add up.
the pros of the sponge media is that it does a good job both housing the benificial bacteria and you don't have to replace it. The cons are that once a month or so when you squeeze it out and swish it through the old tank water from a water change, there is a lot of gunk coming off of it, and it can be a bit messy.
