Hey! I had a betta but he passed on. My aquarium holds ten gallons. It currently houses a few mini pond snails, drift wood, a live plant (looks like Dwarf Bacopa), a stone arrangement, a ceramic dish, gravel, a heater, and filter.
The plant has been there for a year. I haven't seen much growth except for a few buds. I'm thinking I should get a fertilizer. :P Suggestions? I also want to buy more plants but am unsure of which will do well in plain gravel.
I just recently changed the filter cartridge. The old one was pretty destroyed. How long should I wait to start adding fish?
I understand I should do more research on the forums and will. :)
I used the API test kit and got these results:
PH - ~7.8
Ammonia - 0.25 ppm
Nitrite - 0 ppm
Nitrate - 0 ppm
It seems like my PH is high. Could this be from snails or what exactly? Should I work on trying to lower it?
I was thinking of getting a school of fish. Some neon tetras were a past thought. And then eventually adding a new betta. Would neon tetras be okay in this living situation?
