I am soon going to be transitioning my tank from dry start method to being flooded. I have monte carlo and S repens in there currently. I will be adding some more stem plants the day I flood. I read alot about quite a few water changes when you get a new planted tank. So one of my questions is
- How often should I do a water change on a new planted tank?
I was thinking maybe 3 times a week but that led me to my next question
- When should I add in my live bacteria?
I wouldn't wanna add bacteria in just to remove it later with a water change. I also heard that using some live bacteria you need to wait a day after adding a dechlorinater like prime.
Then my final question is
- Should I be adding my fertz right away?
Also I do have decent lighting and CO2.
If anyone would know how to remove air bubbles from aquasoil after a dry start please let me know. I cant do it like normal obviously because of the plants in the way.
I am using Fritz zyme 7 as live bacteria.
I am using Prime as my conditioner
I am using Thrive all in one as my fertz
Thanks for your help!
