About a week ago I bought and setup a fluval flora, I always wanted to do a live plant tank so I figured that was a decent starting spot. I set it up with the fluval stratum that it came with, the fluval nano filter and a Heater set at about 80 degrees. I wasn't sure how quickly I was going to plant it so I added some pure ammonia and let it run about a week (hope that wasn't a mistake). Well 2 days ago I went to a LFS that had a great reputation and purchased a bunch of plants, and did a huge water change to try to remove the ammonia. I planted
1 Anubis nana
2 Rotala Magenta
2 water wisteria
2 java ferns
1 amazon sword
I wanted to try to get some Naja grass or some water sprite, and I was hoping to have dwarf hairgrass or ChainSword as a carpet plant.
I'm running the 13 watt fluval light, but was highly considering ordering and installing a 2nd light, for 10 hours a day.
This kit came with the small C02 kit that I was unsure if i was going to use, I was looking more into using Excel after It settles in and I can remove my Anacharis. The kit also comes with Nutrafin plant gro, is this a good product to use for these plants? Also I put Flourish root tabs in with the stem plants.
Ant help would be appreciated, I hope I'm going in the right direction.
But feel overwhelmed
