Also known as the "Eel Tank".
x1 Tire Track Eel
x2 Sunset Platies
x1 Dalmatian Molly
x1 Red Sword Wag
My odd assortment of plants is as follows:
-some kind of cryptocorne in small clumps
-some spindly wisteria
-an anubias of some kind
-and a mysterious broadleafed plant whose name I never knew
I had the little identifier tags they normally come with saved with my aquarium supplies, but they seem to have gotten lost when I moved home from college.
Right now I have a Whisper 10 filter, a bubbler that I turn on intermittently, and a ZooMed 10W bulb. My substrate is a large grain type sand (or a fine gravel). My tank runs about 68 degrees, which is low, but I should be picking up a heater tomorrow or with my next paycheck (next week). I'm using API Root Tabs as a fertilizer, along with Flora Pride.
My plants seem like they are struggling despite the fertilizer and keep developing yellowed holes in their leaves. I read that this could be because of high nitrates and to do some moderate water changes, so I've been keeping up with a schedule of replacing 2 gallons of water about every other day (at least every two to three days). But they keep developing holes, so I did a bit more online searching and I think it could also be from a potassium deficiency?
Feel free to provide input! I'm a beginner, but I would really like to learn the ropes and have a really nice planted tank someday!
