Please HELP me... :-)
Hi everyone, Iv'e been in the aquarium hobbie for about 5 months now. In that time I have collected a 30 gallon and a 75 gallon. At the beggining it was rough. I spent too much money chemicals that I didn't need, and all my fish kept dying. Over these past 5 months I've gained just enough knolage to keep mt fish alive, so now Im going for plants. I have been trying to grow aquadic plants now for aproximitly 2 months, and I've had absolutly no luck. I've looked for information on the internet about how to grow plants, but all I fined is information about complicated chemicals, fertilizers and nutreince that plant need to survive. It seem to me, you must have to have an advanced degree in botoney or something just to keep these plants alive. Or maybe I'm just dumb. Anyways, I have little to no money, and I would like to know exactly what I should purchase..
so far I've got 130 watts over a 75 gallon tank. Water conditions are soft and slightly acidic, with a ph of 6.8. I did a 100% water change over the last couple days, and I would like someone to tell me exactly what I should put in my water. I have two products called "Equilibrium", (restors mineral balance and gh) and another product called "Kent" (a potasium, iron and micro-nutreint supplement). If someone could inform me if there is anything else I will need, and how much should I put in my water?? HELP ANYONE!
PS.. I will not be using c02, and I dont use any sub-strate, just gravel
