I would let the tank sit to complete the cycle, monitoring the ammonia nitrites and nitrates. I can confirm that plants will take up ammonia so that it bypasses the cycle. The bacteria still cycle,...

I don't know if this is an issue, but some people remove the wheel from the bio-wheel. I would recommend ACs highly, except the water coming out creates surface agitation. I use an internal Fluval...

The Java Fern feeds from its leaves - the "roots" don't contribute, so tabs aren't necessary and they use ferts from the water column.

The only thing I can think of is some kind of terracing, like they use on mountains to have flat surfaces to grow things on. Otherwise gravity will eventually win out. Maybe hardscaping with flat...

I agree that there's a net loss of CO2 over 24 hours. Unfortunately, I don't have any hard data to back that up. But if an airstone aerates a fishtank, it must dissolve atmospheric CO2 as well as...

I think that each dose is calculated to bring the ferts up to a certain level. So the level must go down over 2 days (I'm guessing) and then the next dose brings it back up. So more than one dose...

I also think that cleaning the filter each week in tank water from the water change might help. If that doesn't work, you could try adding another comparable filter. Also, IMO, you can start...

Try a flat, maybe round small rock embedded in the substrate. I think that's a good breeding site. Also, make sure it's in a place where there is water movement, but I guess not too much. But the...

IMO, if you're talking about a working fish tank, you can't neglect the biology. Bacteria are very numerous and they release CO2 during respiration. So do plants. Actually, so do we, although it...

CO2 will be dissolved in the water when there is less in the water than in the air. Conversely, if the water has more CO2, some will escape through the surface. An airstone facilitates...
