I started this stank around 6 months ago with standard gravel but realized very quickly that it wouldn't cut it. I did a full substrate change to Safe-T-Sorb and added some of the gf's Pool Filter Sand in the corner for contrast. Added DIY CO2 via 3 2 liter bottles. Started dosing the tank with Macro Micro Mix from Aquarium Fertilizer.com and the plants are finally outgrowing the hair algae!
The plants that I'm sure of are my banana plant and my amazon sword, as for the stem plant and the runner style grass I cant remember because i was just starting out. Can anyone help me out?
As for the fish i have a Dwarf Gourami, 7 Neon Tetras, 3 Garra Gotyla, Golden Dojo Loach, A male guppy, and a Rubber Lip Pleco
I just wanted to get some advice from you guys since this is my first post and all.
