Aokashi! you are going to slash my throat and kill me! I tore down the tank. Everything was just a mess and i hated looking at it! So here is what I did.
I added flourite (it was on sale, and my friend got it for me :D) with some root tabs for a few of the plants.
I added more stem plants (cabomba, baby tears, anarcharis)
I also floated the water sprite
I added some seachem flourish liquid fert.
I changed the light to a 5100K 10 Watt
There are still no fish or shrimp. I think I have two snails from the plants. They are teenie tiny!
I have heard many things about when to add fish. Some say let the tank run for about three days and along with testing you can add the fish. Some say no until the tank is fully cycled and you get the right reading then add fish. What do you guys suggest?
I wanted to know what the purpose of shrimp is? And Snails?
Also i feel as if my lighting is uneven. Should i worry about that?
And, i don't think everything is where its supposed to be. I think the wood is too big maybe? Idk. Lol I need to move things around.
There is no heater in it. Do i need one?
