Assistance with New setup
I need some help with advice on where I am at.. I have never had a fish tank. so no experience with anything fish tank related. My big question is.. am I on track, are my plants that I see turning icky ok - any advice as to what I should do?
So here is my setup
90g near a window with sun exposure
(was on for 12h a day, I recently reduced to ~6h a day + morning sunlight gets to it)
UV filter (not powered up)
flora fauna (all from a dot com plant provider back east (I am in seattle)
there are only snails, that are layin eggs and getting fat
Amazon Sword- Large pot
Aponogeton, Madagascar Lace (Aponogeton madagascariensis)
Cryptocoryne Parva (bare root)(also available in pots)
Cryptocoryne, Lutea (Cryptocoryne lutea) Pot (medium size)
Cryptocoryne, Wendtii, Bronze (Cryptocoryne wendtii v. Tropica)
Java Moss (Vesicularia Dubyana)(4 oz size portion)
Sagittaria, Subulata (narrow leaf)(Sagittaria subulata) - 10 Plants per order
Sword, Ozelot (Echinodorus Ozelot)(potted)(Large)
and a $1.99 westeria purchased a petsmart
one sinking moss ball from Local FS added 2 days after the initial planting
two floating moss balls from Local FS added 5 days after inital planting
the tank has been up with plants for about 7 days now, I did precondition the soil with water and the westeria it has been up for about 20 days now.
since the first initial plant load out I have done 1 full water change shortly after planting to clean out water. and one 30% water change 3 days later.
I had significant pearling for the first two days now I see no significant except for the moss balls.
I have attached a few examples of questionable areas I don't know if i should worry about. I have marked them up.
Red=appears like death
Yellow= Plant hasn't done anything at all
no markup photo is the initial planting day one
