, would like to avoid this.
I need to add structure(add rocks and Plants) so the Pike can move around and ambush it's prey(live food). I already know what type of rocks to use but don't know what types of plants. My wife wants colors, other than green. Which plants can I use?
In order to support the suggested plants in medium lightling, what will be needed: Flourish Excel, Roots tabs, ferts? What would be needing and what will be the amounts and dosages?.
If I'm ok with medium light plants with no pressurized CO2, wasn't there a list of plants catigorized by the level of lighting?
What do you think?
