im about to change the layout of my 3 year old setup 90x38x45 cm
old and tired susbtrate and too much organic matter.
going to use as fertilized substrate ada tourmaline,bacter 100 and a mix of equo vigor plus and tropica plant susbtrate + a 5 cm black gravel 2-3 mm
its going to be the same as it is, heavy planted, pressurized co2,EI fertilization and about 06 wt per litter.
just a change in fertilized susbtrate and gravel.
allready got everything planed except time to do it
dont know much about those fertil substrate and my question does my tank will need to cylce again? amonia spikes etc.
the plan is to use about 50% of the old water on the new setup and the same cylced filter, more fast growing plants to help and do several big water changes on the first 15 days after.
is it recomended to use products like prime and bottled bacteria to help
sorry my messy questions and english not a google translator fan
