I decided the other day to re-arrange my 10 gallon planted. I was stupid and took the plants out and put them in a cup only halfway submerged. All of them were ok, other than my sword. It was in the direct fire of the fan in my room and dried all the leaves out. I decided to toss it in the tank and hope it would perk back up. A couple of the leaves are brown and dead, so i'm going to pluck them off. Most of them are mostly green with just brown spots. 2 leaves are fine. Should I pluck the spotted ones off too? Or just leave them be?
Also. Probably picking up a 20g Long in a few minutes. Most likely going to be a community planted tank. I love my betta's, but I'm pretty jealous of the glass catfish I bought for my brothers 40 g.
It's going to be planted, i'm buying plants from the same person. So it will be planted. Should I take the filter media from my cycled 10 gallon and put it in there to help it establish faster? If so for how long? Every time I have ever asked about cycling a planted tank I get mixed answers because the plants alter the readings?
