Odd. I swore I replied back.
Anyways, I only wash the decorations when I do a full water change with hot water. Same with gravel in a fine mesh colander under hot water.
Now, I getting confused with all these mix response, so let me back track and just say yes or no so some of this info can get clarified for me to write down.
to ghost shrimp for a non filtered tank or a small tank that has decorations.
need for testing kits since I do water changes twice a week (50% mid, and full at the end of the week)
15w heater for my size bowl.
Java Fern, Java Moss, Naja Grass great for small tanks that requires little light, but you need to anchor them down.
Someone suggested an Anacharis plant. I read they can grow up to 2 inches. Are they suitable for a 1g fish bowl?
Rocks is fine as long there is no pesticides etc. Let them soak about 5 days. Thank you for the info. I have a rock garden out front that has nice size river rocks that would would go nice in my fish bowl. One small one of course. We don't use pesticides, so the rocks should be fine.
I think that sums it up. Now my questions related to the info above.
With 2 water changes a week. Should I bother with live plants, and just stick with the silk/plastic plants for now?
I seen a nice heater that is 25w that has a adjustable control on it. SO far everyone had no problems having it in their 1.5-1g tanks. Is it ok to get as long I keep an eye on the temperature and thermometer? Heater can be found here http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Submersi...0525536&sr=8-1
I will stop with the questions before I started dog piling more. Sorry if I cause any problems here.
