I did it that way. My co2 died and I never bothered replacing it. My lights were quite old, so I didn't even change them at all. I didn't completely cut out dosing, I cut it back first then went off...

I had to remove my bettas from my community tank, not because of aggression from the betta but the other way round. Betta's long fins will often attract nipping, and because they are slow feeders...

Thanks all. I would love to find black diamond, but I don't think it's available anywhere. There's some other brands I can get pretty easy, but I don't trust them.

I think it will be sand for me.

Haha, I had a dino head for a little while. If I want something fish related, I have to be the one to tell them, else wise they have no idea what to get. which I guess is a good thing.

The best would be dwarf sag. In a dirt tank they get such crazy roots even I have trouble pulling them up. It's what I currently have with 9 bn plecs (plus babies) and I never have any come up.

I am wondering if the Congo were eating the plants because they were young and going through a growth a spurt. I have not seen them eat any plants except duckweed for a long time.
