This is what i have done so far.
Please give me as much feedback as you want. I am trying to figure out what I am doing so after everything grows for a month, I will experiment with some new plants.
My goal is to have a nicely planted tank which will be able to breed the mated pair of Festivum Cichlids which were part of the trade for the tank.
Here is what I am currently doing:
1/2 EI dosing method
25% water change weekly
lights on 4 hours, off 7 hours, on 6 hours, off 7 hours.
Not testing water for anything
2 Festivum Cichlids
5 Congo Tetras
7 small glowlight tetras
3 red tail tiger loaches
1 albino bristlenose
I probably need to add some additional algea eating types but don't really know yet. I do have a little bba but had the lights on 10 hours per day until a couple of days ago so I will see if less light helps
Here is the tank today after 25% wc. What do you all think?
