Thanks for the respond, well I guess I just have to wait and see, my plants order will come in next week. I will have 30+ stems of stargrass, 20+ stems of rotala indica, 10+ stems of hygrophila, 10+ mature sagittaria subulata (14"+!). And:
1-2 Microsorium pteropus "Java Fern"
2 Anubias Nana
1 Echinodorus Barthi "Broadleaf amazon" or
1 Red Ozelot Sword
10 Sagittaria pusilla "Dwarf"
5 Sagittaria subulata "needle leaf"
15 Vallisneria spiralis "Italian"
2 Cryptocoryne wendtii "Red"
2 Cryptocoryne wendtii "Green"
2 Cryptocoryne Lucens
I'm trying to prevent the initial algae out break by heavily plant my tank from the get-go. I want to wait a bit to see how my plants respond to water/CO2, etc.. before adding more of what I have yet to understand. My question now is... Do I need to start the fert asap?, can algae grows given a heavy planted tank with out fert (for now). I'll read up some more on Tom Barr method and order the appropriate ferts, it not really expensive so it good to have in hand.
Also with all the money I spent on plants, I wont have fish for at least another month. Hope this will be ok.
