Anubias is a extremely slow growing plant & doesn't really require fertilizer as long as you do routine water changes. Also don't bury the rhizome/roots in the substrate, it'll cause the plant to slowly decay.

Nitrates are 80 ppm?

What do you plan to stock the tank with when the tank is cycled?
I've got the rhizomes above the gravel with only the roots holding it down. The plant on the right of the tank I just left in its sponge root holder it was attached to. Will that rot if left like that?

Looks that way to me too. Guess I'll test the tap water to see if it does contain nitrates.

Just a single beta or dwarf puffer haven't made up my mind yet. I've read different opinions about having a fish with the snail, but I think I'd be very mindful of the water quality.

And I do not wish to kill the snail. So I think dosing with ammonia would be bad for it?
