Looking to get a new tank planted (before adding fish)
I'm going to put together a nano tank--specifically, a Fluval Edge 6 gallon. The bottom will have Caribsea Eco-Complete (black) and stones.
Before I add fish, I want to do some mild aquascaping--"mild" in the sense that the OEM LEDs aren't up to plants with significant light needs, though I might, in the future, upgrade.
The tank will eventually house a dwarf puffer, and maybe a couple of shrimp (running with the gamble that the DP won't kill them). But I want to get the decor, including the plants, set right first
I think I'm going to go with whatever I find at the LFSs, but will presumably include an anubias or two (tied to driftwood), maybe a water wisteria--i.e., low light plants.
While doing all this I'm going to seed the biomedia in my display tank for a while (and add SafeStart before adding the DP).
My question is, is there anything I would need to do to feed the plants in the meantime? I mean, before the fish and its (eventual) nitrate production. The anubias especially, since they're not root feeders.
