Hey guys, I'm real sorry for asking this, as I'm sure you've probably seen questions like this a thousand times, but I had a few questions...
So I have a planted tank which has been established for about 6 months or so.
The specs are:
150 watt metal halide (i know it's a lot, but I have it hanging and it's working out with no ill effects)
Aquasoil Amazonia II
Daily 1 squirt of PFertz NPKM
Weekly 40% water changes
No feeding (aside from an algae wafer from time to time)
lots of rcs
I tried CRS, but they all died off slowly.
I haven't checked my water params (I know I should, and maybe my question can't be answered without them), but the rcs and ottos are doing fine. rcs has been breeding like crazy.
I didnt properly acclimate them, I just floated the bag in the tank, then threw them into the tank.
But they lived for a week or so, and slowly started dying off.
Question is, do you think it's something with my water params?
Or is it that I didn't properly acclimate them?
Since they lived for a week or so (one by one they started dying), I wasn't sure if acclimation could be a problem.
