New to Planted Tank, New to Plantedtank.net, Help Appreciated!
I am a new member of plantedtank.net, I've had a planted tank for about 3 months now and need help and a little of guidance on where to go. I honestly don't even know what some of the plants/fish are in my tank and will take criticisms and feedback to help better my tank.
29 Gallon Tank
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GH9HSC6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=12 Amazon Swords
4 Mormino Moss Balls
1 Unknown Plant 1 (Attached)
1 Unknown Plant 2 (Attached)
1 Dwarf Pleco
1 Bamboo Shrimp
3 Nerite Snails
6 Unknown Fish Silver Ones 1 (Attached)
3 Unknown Fish Mino looking ones 2 (Attached)
4 Unknown Fish Orange Ones 3 (Attached)
2 Some Sort of Cat Fish (Attached)
(I'm fairly new to fish tanks in general I have been told I'm overstocked, if this is true what is generally an okay amount of fish for this tank?)
Water Temp ~82 Degrees F
Nitrate 80ppm (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00025694O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
The amazon swords were doing really well initially, growing many new leaves. Then they stopped and started browning a bit and growing algae. The Unknown plant 1 has been doing very well growing new leaves like crazy, no complaints. Unknown plant 2 has been trimmed, when I planted them they started growing new leaves from the ground but the initial ones started dying so I trimmed the initial plants but kept the new leaves, they don't appear to be doing so well. The moss balls are starting to brown a tad which is concerning. The fish all appear to be healthy.
Thanks in advance!
