algae still strong
just added co2 and shrimp
changed gravel, eco complete and black diamond
Finnex planted plus 24/7 2 years
I'm trying to freshen up my old tank. I finally had it going great after being a noob. I left it in someone else's care, they didn't care lol, so it got bad and I finally moved it to my new home. I killed all the fish in the process of moving it, but had a ton of plants. I used all my old stuff and set it back up. after a week we added fish, some have lived and some have died but after about 5 months, I've got some good healthy fish.
I am having trouble getting the plants to thrive and have an algae issue. about a month ago I decided to do an over haul. I took out all of the old gravel and replaced it will 20lbs eco complete, and 100lbs of black diamond sand. I was hoping the gravel would help with nutrition, but no progress in plants. Today I added co2 on very low , 4 more guppies, another female beta and 16 shrimp.
I started co2 on low because of adding new fish, i don't wanna over pollute it. However I will bump up co2 in a week if plants dont get better.
Next goal is a new light, I want something that is automate cause I'm not that technical at programming lights. I'm looking for something like the planted+ 24/7 but bluetooth.
