Hey guys sorry I haven't updated this, but I decided on that rock scape I posted up there earlier and now two weeks later everything has been planted and is doing well. THe hemianthus seems to be growing well, though slowly(imo). I have seen it pearl many times especially after I do a water change. I have been having some trouble with high nitrites lately so i have been doing large water changes, hopefully the tank will cycle out soon. Without any further ado here are the pictures
Tank : ADA 60P
Lighting : Finnex RAY II
Substrate : Aquasoil Amazonia + Powder on top
Filter : Fluval 206 filter
Co2 : 5 lb cylinder + GLA Nature regulator + ADA Pollen glass type 3
Plants : Hemianthus callitrichoides for the ground, some dwarf hairgrass near the rocks, and I have no idea what the other plants are called!
Fish : Dwarf gourami, 6 neon tetras, 3 guppies, 1 otocinclus, 1 balloon boesmani rainbow, 2 clown killifish, 1 pair of pseudomugil furcata (furcata rainbows, or forktail blue eyes) , 1 electric blue ram
Shrimp : 6 amano , 2 tiger, 9 red cherry
I have a few questions if anybody could help me out. Let me list them below
1. I am using seachem purigen currently in my filter, my question is where exactly I should be placing it level wise in my FLuval 206 filter and if I should even be using it at all? I have been looking at some of the different manufacturers for the filters and some recommend chemical on top while others recommend it to be in the middle. I am only using the foam filter, lots of bio balls and finally the purigen on top.
2. I need help identifying all the red plants in the background, some of them seem to be dying now / turning less red and I am not sure what I am missing.
3. FOr ferts I hear the Green leaf aquariums dry fert set is all I need? I bought 3 bottles of seachem iron potassium and... sodium or something, should I get the dry fert set as well?
That's pretty much it, thanks for reading and I hope you guys enjoy the tank, If you have any concerns or opinions please let me know what I can do, I am new to planted tanks so I have no idea what I am missing if anything!
