My girlfriend obtained this tank about half a month or so ago, it had
HC, UG, and Ranunculus growing emersed in it before she got it.
So since then she filled it up, put a bit of new plants and some hardscape.
2.5 gallon 12x6x8
Desk Lamp, 65 Watt Compact fluorescent 6500K
Aquasoil I or II, not sure
Some day list: Cherry shrimp and Rasbora Briggitae
The under part of the UG carpet is super gunky and dirty, like i said
it was grown emersed so im sure it accumulated lots of dirt and other stuff.
Every time i try to get rid off of plants underneath the healthy ones, i cant
help but bring up the good ones along with lots of soil.
1. We want to take the whole set up apart, clean the soil, separate the
plants and replant everything. Would we be safe doing this and still save
most of the plants? The only thing that worries us is not being able to plant
the HC and UG. Would i be okay? We just want to get this tank a second
chance at first place, its nice and all, but its not healthy underneath, like
i said, its super dirty and have lots of dead plants and gunk.
PLEASE give us some input on this before we take it apart.
Breaking the Cycle of the tank is not an issue, as there will be no fish
added for a long time.
Thanks in advance.
