Anacharis questions and a few QT questions
I love the look of the anacharis. My petco got in some really nice bunches and I'd love to get some for my tanks but I'm not sure they're work or not.
I've seen differing requirements for them. Petco has them advertised as a 65-75 degree temp range. LiveAquaria has it at 59 - 82 degrees. Also see that it can be planted or floating. Some say it needs ferts and Co2. Is the Co2 necessary or just liquid ferts.
Also would like to get a few of their marimo moss balls.
Here's what I have
10 gallon tank
Seachem Flourish comp
API Root tabs
Approx 7.2 ph
In process of cycling but when I put plants in this tank, hopefully it will be fully cycled.
Possible hard water. Was looking up how to test for hard water and it brought up a soap test. It passed that test so with out testing further I'm not sure, though I do have/had some curling of fins on two of my bettas.
Now questions on QT'ing. (The live plant tanks have fish in them)
What things do I need to QT plants?
Lights, heater, ferts, gravel. Does the tank I QT them in have to have a filter? How long to QT and what do I look for to see if something is wrong with the plants?
What more do I need to know about QT'ing? Comments/advice on anything is welcome! Thank you!
