I was given a bag of flourite (the regular kind i think, looks like brown gravel) from a friend and was wondering what are the precautions I should take? I am just about to start a low tech planted tank. nothing too fancy just a few low light/maintenance plants. How soon should I add fish (betta), snails (what type should I get)? Also how many water changes? and can i add bottom feeders to this? do i need a filter? should i add root tabs and/or liquid plant "stuff". Sorry for all the questions i'm a newbie!
any plant recommendations would be awesome! I have a store credit to my LFS so i want to pick up plants and snails.
Again, sorry for all the questions, if anyone can answer a few or all of them i would be so thankful!!!
Hope everyone has a great day!!
