I usually sprinkle some ferts on the bottom, before I add soil or substrate. That encourages deeper root growth. Plants will only develop as many roots as they need though, if you make the fertilizer...

Crayfish are AWESOME, but will mangle plants. Local types will crawl out and explore on land much more than the feeder or decorative kind you would find in an LFS.

Most inverts, excluding some of the fancy dwarf shrimp, delight in water with a high Ph. I love crayfish, and some decorative snails or shrimp could be a nice addition to a 10 gallon. Both snails and...

Eco complete holds and delivers nutrients to plant roots, but does not have any fertilizers of it's of own. Adding root tabs would be a good idea, you can just push them into the gravel.

Seattle,
Jeremy's fish doesn't have an adipose fin or axillary process, it is not a salmonid although the coloration is similar. It is definitely a juvenile Bass.
