Hello, I am new to planted tanks and aquariums in genral. This is my first planted tank and I am loving the hobby!!! So now to the tank specs.
Aqaurium: 20gallon high from Petsmart
filter: Tetra Whisper 30i internal filter
Heater: Tetra whisper heater
Subtrate: aquarium gravel
Plants: Java moss and dieing java fern
Fish: Convict Cichlids
Lighting: 1, 17 watt florecent tube !Will upgrade soon!
Other decor: lots of slate
Do I need more lighting even if I only have Java moss, Fern, and anubias? Also, does anybody know why my Java fern is looking so bad? I got them from Petsmart even though they didnt look good, at all. Is their any way of saving them? I regularly dose Leaf Zone, liquid fertilizer, should I dose other ferts too? Comments, suggestions and criticizems are appreciated! Sorry about the bad pics, I havent gotten use to aquarium photography! Thanks in advance,
