I have a 10g planted tank and I really need help with a few things.
I have an amazon sword an Anubis nana some java ferns and some cousin of the amazon sword who's name I have forgotten.
Firstly I would like to know what plant grows tall that I can bury in my gravel sub straight at the back of the tank next to my amazon sword that's really low maintenance.Poor BB needs some tall cover at the back of his tank and I'm sure he would agree that the top of the tank is very naked looking.I did have some sort of ribbon/grass plant that was tall but this started to melt so I ripped it out.
I use liquid fertilizer every week but that's about all the love they get.The light is on 10-12 hours a day and although I don't know what type of bulb I have as I was given the tank it's says 220v/50hz and is florescent.What does that mean?
Also I bought an anubis nana and it was going well until BB got fin rot.I was floating his QT tank in this tank for two weeks for the warmth and the nana rotted,all I have left is 4 small leaves and a few roots on the rhizome that I was able to salvage.I did not change any of the water in the big tank while I was floating BB and after two weeks it stank.Did the nana die from bad water?Will it get past it's brush with death now the water is clean?
Sorry for the large pics but I'm technoimpaired. I really want to thicken up the planting with tall plants but I don't want anything that's even remotely difficult.Any suggestions?
^My poor little nana! :(
^have I planted the java fern too deep or is this o.k?
^I also bought this little cave that has a hole at the back so that I can suction cap it to the back of his tank near the top.I'm going to cover it with java moss so that he can sleep either in or on top of it and not have far to go for a breath.I need to find the right suction cap though so it's still a work in progress.He has a driftwood cave but this is more of an amusement rather than a bed as the tank isn't the right shape for a betta so it's too far to the bottom to sleep there, but the tank was free so this is what he gets.
