First Planted Tank - 10 gallon
Hey folks. I have just set up my first planed tank. I have a 10 gallon that I was keeping a betta in for about 4 years. He died a few weeks ago, so I decided to change things up.
I bought some Fluval Stratum for Shrimp because it was on clearance 50% off. I have placed that in the tank instead of the old gravel. I still have the silk plants that were in there before, as well as the rocks. Using the same filter. I went to pick up a new betta and decided to start my planted tank with something simple, and was recommended hornwart since it is simple, easy, and fast growing.
I was fine with the way it looks for now, but after 24 hours I noticed that there was hair-like algae growing on it. Then after 48 hours I think small bits of it are floating around in the tank.
Is this something I need to be concerned about!? Will this settle down soon?
