Azoo Plant Grower
My 15 gallon tank has taken a beating with some very annoying algae. I have thought about it and I want to redo it, as I also want to change somethings around and add more hardscape. I want to use Azoo's substrate as I can get it locally at Neptune Aquatics. Though I have a few questions/concerns.
1. The biggest concern I have is how much ammonia does this stuff leach? I heard 2 ppm or less. The tank has 8 rummies, 5 bettas, 4 nerites, and 3 amanos, I can't have the fish out of the tank too long, but I will have a container for them while the tank is being torn down.
2. How should I go about cleaning the filter to prevent algae from coming back? It is an Ehiem Ecco rated for 35 gallons (smallest of the Eccos) Should I trash the sponges and get new ones or what? Same goes with the bioballs.
3. How many would I need for 1.5"-2.5-3"? Should I use powersand to help me with the desired depth without needing to buy 2 bags or am I better off with two bags? I may set up other tanks with the remaining.
Thanks for the help!
