PFS for UG dry start
I had a pretty nasty BBA outbreak from buying plants online coupled with me becoming lazy and having the same lighting minus co2, dosing EI, and regular WC's... decided to just acclimate my livestock to another tank temporarily and start new...
Anyway, I have a bunch of extra PFS and actually really like the look that it gives. My plan is to grow a nice UG floor using dry start and then add in some java fern within the base of the manzanita wood later on.
I was planning on using root tabs since PFS isn't really rich in minerals, but have the fear of the UG coming uprooted being that the sand is pretty unstationary. Has anyone had success keeping a UG carpet with PFS?
On a side note... The manzanita I have has been completely engulfed in BBA, I was planning on just scrubbing it clean and spraying it with some H202 and then allowing time for it to dry out before introducing it into the tank. Anyone see any potential problems with this? Is it enough to irradicate the evil BBA entirely?
