hey all.. I have a few questions about my new tank setup..
It has been running for about 2 weeks now 35 gal tank with 65 w lights.
laterite/gravel substrate. I got the fish and water from my friend hence the nil cycle time... Anyways I had 3 tiger barbs and a small pleco all doing fine for a week now. Well yesterday I went and bought some extras for the tank..
3 more tiger barbs
2 albino tigers
2 tinfoil barbs (BIG MISTAKE) (these GROW to over 12 inches LONG... im going to have to take them back)
6 corscrew vals
1 really nice Rotella indica
1 catdalline (sp)?
the vals are planted easy.. the rotella and catdelline came in a sponge wraped with a metal wire tie.. how go i plan these 2??? just in the substrate alone or with the sponge and wire???
Also in the span of today I lost 2 of the new Tigers (both Females
and im hopeing nothing else goes...
I did the usual new tank acclimation but I guess maybe too much stress?
Also Got a nice test kit tested about 7.5 ph, ammonias and nitrites 0ppm
and General Hardness GH? 10.
does this sound ok???
Also what should i buy in the way of fertilizer??
im going to take the tinfoils and 2 dead barbs back to the store I hope i can get some credit for them
HAPPY NEW YEAR
