OFL: Just fish food in a 10 gallon. I put about three large pinches into a plastic baggie with holes in it and let it sit in the water for a day or two until it gets moldy, then I take it out and replace. I'll do this until I can get a piece of shrimp to put in there. I started the cycle six days ago. Plants: A handful of water lettuce, 2 aponogeton bulbs, 6 stems of wisteria, and a java fern.
All the plants are growing like weeds. The wisteria have grown around 4 new leaves each in the past six days. The aponogeton bulbs have new leaves that are almost to the top of the aquarium (it's been in four days), the water lettuce has multiplied from two small plants to a lot, and the java fern just sort of sits there with no new signs of growth.
