I'll ask to post a craigslist add to get some gravel. He says no one would want to give away fishtank substrate. I think i may end up putting up an add anyways...
I have lots of liveplants. They just aren't doing anything /= that or my testkit is messed up.
That vine I have in there... is a Variegated Philodendron Vine. You probably can find one for like a dollar at any flower store often sold in little FuFu looking baskets with big bows and stuff since they are like almost unkillable. Dangle that in the tank after cleaning it's roots and let it try a hand in the tank. They are used to not getting any love, so survive on ANYTHING given to them so anything your fish produces that vine will devour like a starving Hobo and shoot out tons of very elegant roots.
Plus... Drax loves those roots to swim around. I swear that vine puts something out that Attracts Drax to it... he sleeps around it, he eats next to it... I dunno haha thank goodness it's in three parts so when I do water changes I put a small string of the vine in the vase with him.
*Looking over older pic of tank with that Vine*
So odd... that Recent Earlier pic really shows an EXPLOSION of Roots... I wonder what caused it. Maybe when the Ammonia went up from those TopFin Bulbs I had... (Now Gone) Hmmmmmmmm
