Ok so I have had my 20G low-tech/light tank set up since the 10th. IM NOT USING CO2. I ordered KNO3 and KH2PO4. I just realized these are "macro's".
In my tank currently I have:
1 20lb bag of eco-complete black
3 small java ferns (8 or so blades on each plant, one has 3 plantlets on the tips) and a petco moss ball. (Java moss attached to a pingpong ball, weighted down with a weight and fishing line so it "floats")
1- female betta
The moss ball is kinda gettin dingey lookin and the ferns look the same as the day I brought them home, which isnt sayin much really.
Now the question is: Should I look into getting some Seachem Flourish, Flourish Excel, or Seachem Equilibrium?
I am about to run this light when it gets here: Corallife Freshwater Aqualight 24" Double T-5 Strip W/14W Colormax & 6700K Plant Bulb
Is that "too much light" for a 20G without CO2?
How long should my photoperiod be with these plants? It is currently at like 10-12 hours depending on when I wake up/go to bed. At least until I can afford a digital timer.
