keeping my extras healthy and happy
So I've been bitten by the Planted Tank bug again. I haven't had my tanks in a little over a year (due to a move) and I am ready to set them back up. I am working slowly as I have to literally replace my tanks (they cracked in transit) and I also have to get stands (they were borrowed where I used to live. So I have a 2g hex set up right now. I got a few things for it but it was way to much of everything (bought it how it was sold at the LFS.) What can I do to keep the extras happy and healthy until I have room for them all? I have two more 2g hex tanks in the attic and plan to get them down this weekend and hopefully set them up. Someone offered me a 20g and a 55g (both need stands as well.) I need to paint my LR before I set up anything I can't move so there's my delimma. I do, thankfully, have gravels, lighting, decor, filters and heaters in the attic and I hope most can be salvaged (with new filter media of course!) Then there is the issue of fish. I have never made a CO2 tank but plan to this go-round. There were some things I couldn't grow well and I think that was the reason. This has gotten long and off-topic a bit. So, advice? Suggestions?
