sorry guys, I didn't mean to kick anyone in the shins, I can see where my inital post may have been confusing
I would plan on feeding the fish (probably minnows or guppies), as been pointed out, without food the fish won't make "fertilizer" but sooner or later the fish will die, I won't be starving them to an early death so I was wondering if I could feed that to the turlte, sounds like that's not a good idea.
somebody mentioned that there are other ways of fertilizing the tank. Can somebody point me to an easy solution, something that you just shake over it or put a few drops in? Obviously I know nothing about aquatic plants and am reading (read the beginners page herein) and learning as I go, but the learning curve seems mights steep!!!
right now I have a 10g tank, pebble rock as a "substrate" (I think that's what it's called in the aquatic plant world), a 5500K CFL and a 6500K CFL bulbs. I also have a water tank heater that keeps the water around 75-78. and later today I will buying an Aquaclear filter. I don't want to get too deep (joke) in the aquatic plant world, nothing like CO2 setups or that. Just something that I can feed my turtle.
The plants I currently have are:
and I plan to get some Anacharis
thanks for whater help you guys are able to supply!
