When to take the risk again?
I've never had much luck with Amanos in the past. Something was in the substrate that kept killing them off. Couldn't get a grip on what it was. They would always mass die off the day after I acclimated them (drip, plop and drop, tried different types of acclimating).
I've re-done my tank now completely and redid the substrate. Same plants, wood, filter, lighting, CO2 etc.
I took the risk and added some Amanos (a good deal, couldn't resist). They were very shy the first few days but noticed that they became more and more active in the following days and they're now looking like the amanos I had back when I was successful with them.
My question: I want to add more. Mainly because it's a 95G and ~30 amanos won't make a dent in the algae. So how long should I monitor this first batch before even considering a second? I don't wanna push it and end up with an even bigger wipeout than before.
