Christmas or Taiwan moss
nothing but hitchhiker snails at the moment
eventually my old betta and maybe an amano shrimp
apologies for the shamefully dirty glass, I need to wipe it down next water change...
NEED DOSING SUGGESTIONS. Desperately. I have the entire Flourish line at my disposal, I just don't know how much to dose in a low-tech nano. I've read that java ferns hate Excel, but I'm not doing CO2... how can I strike a happy balance? Do I need to dose trace and iron? Or should I just go with low doses of macro? Ideally, this tank will need minimal lighting and minimal amounts of care.
Also, I noticed a bit of BBA on the edges of some leaves (plants came that way, but from a tank that was well-established and balanced). Do I need to worry, or is a little bit of BBA okay?
I've had cyanobacteria problems in my last two 2.5 gallon attempts. I want to get this 'scape off to the best start possible in order to stave off problems.
Fingers crossed that it'll stay healthy!
