Yeahhhh I think i'm going to go for it.

I don't even dose it's a soil tank. It's likely that the nutrients feeding the greenwater are leeching from the substrate somehow but idk. I've just done a...

Plants are - 4 giant vals, 5 cryptocoryne balanasae, 5 cryptocoryne parva, 8 or so dwarf sag, 15 or so stems (potamogeton/egeria/limnophila) and some moss. There is a lot of bare sand (probably over...

If the same fish were in the wild they would always eat live food. I don't think it's possible for a carnivorous fish (such as tetra) to eat too much live food as long as it isn't looking obese

Angry Another thread about aggression in a small group of barbs

I did a bad thing and only bought 3 odessa barbs for a brand new tank (40 gallon). I had odessas before but they seemed like the most docile fish of all time. They are the only fish and are harassing...

The only one I can grow is dwarf saggitaria, I swear by it. Hairgrass didn't do too well for me and neither did pygmy chain sword.

You might as well try to grow HC because you never know until you...

General rule; less species is more. It makes the shoaling fish look much better if they are in as big a number as possible. Hence more danios/rasboras would be better than adding cardinals.

That's...

I think in a tank you leave alone for eons any plant can get out of hand depending on how well it spreads on it's own in your tank. Dwarf sag didn't "take over" as much as my egeria najas did over...

I've never had micranthemum tweedei but for any but a tiny tank I would recommend dwarf saggitaria for foreground. It's quite easy to grow for me and I have hard water, low light.

Also, this thread is amazing. People don't say much stupid stuff about my tanks though.

It looked lovely with the amazon sword in there. It looks OK now, and I am sure it will look amazing once more in a week or two.

Dwarf saggitaria is one of my favourite plants!
