Sharing my noob experiences
Wanted to share what I've learned setting up my first planted tank.
1. First, when co2 stops you grow algae! I had a clean tank for first 2 weeks until my co2 unknown to me stopped working. I hooked it back up and now hair algae outbreak has died back almost completely.
2. Be careful who you buy plants from online. I bought most of my plants from an amazing online vendor, all flourished. However bought a couple from another guy online, sent in dry ziploc bags and all melted.
Still learning in this fascinating hobby! Glad to be part of this group.
