Yeah, I should think regular amounts would be fine. What makes you think your trace NPK are low?

I was reading that limited growth can be caused by low NPKs. I found a dosing schedule that works for me, but I am going to adjust it a bit though. The only things I can think of is, NPKs and CO2, which I will start adding in hopefully a month.

Your tank is going to be gorgeous. The plants should take off like weeds under that kind of care.

I hope so, spending all this money lol, I need to start making a list for what I need...

The 5 gallon annoys me, so I may get a 5.5 glass aquarium for Mars instead, as I always find something to hate about the tank because I didn't buy all the items (I am picky with aquariums lol).

I am too. That's why I have so many spare filters and tanks sitting around. I should hold a fishy garage sale.

I have added rummynose tetras (10) and an endler that Sakura through in lol. Pictures should be uploaded tomorrow.

That would be awesome! I am gonna get the estimate for his tank down, buy the tank, but not set it up on the same spot because
i don't like a tiny bit of sun light hitting it. New spot will be better.

Tank looks good! Are all of your plants living? Im just starting out and kind of nervous about how easy (or not!) live plants would be.

Sorry for no update lol...

Live plants are pretty easy as long as you you get a plant light bulb (6500k-7500k) and you give them some ferts to grow.

After I rescaped the the tank it was much easier for underwater pictures, it just took lots of time lol.
