so after being an avid fish keeper for a long time, i've decided to move away from aggressive fish and into a more peaceful world
i'm starting my new tank soon but just had a few quick questions.
1) im planning on using ADA Amazonia and read a lot about the ammonia spike, i was wondering if it would be safe to start planting/scaping during this period? i have a brand new filter thats been sitting around and wanted to begin cycling with water from my current tank. should i just let the ammonia cycle itself out or should i begin planting?
2) i have a spare 20gal truvu and the frameless tanks are starting to grow on me so much, has anyone chopped off the top of a truvu tank? dumb question but i was wondering if its ever been done or a good idea, i'm tempted to do it but at the same time i dont really want to bother, heh.
3) can anyone suggest any good ferts ? i'll be stopping in to the ADA store and maybe be getting some of theirs, but just wanted some suggestions from the experienced users on here.
im planning on doing an iwagumi style tank with mostly HC and maybe some micro swords to fill in the background, any suggestions? i've been browsing these forums for a while and finally have the time to take the dive, thanks all !!
