I don't think so. The snails have been helping with getting your cycle started. So the spike from the new biomass shouldn't be severe.Hello 4 weeks ago I started my 5 gallon planted tank. I started the tank with plants in it from day one
Dwarf water lettuce
Pogostemon stellatus octopus
I am using hob filter
I have a heater that holds the tank at 76 degrees
And a stingray finnex light
after two weeks my water parameters have been stable at
Ammonia .25 ppm (it seems other people using api master test will get this reading always
Nitrite 0 ppm
Nitrate 5 ppm
after two weeks I added a nerite snail who is happily cruising around cleaning my glass. I also have some rams horn baby snails who came with my plants I have left in the tank.
I was planning on getting 6-8 least rasboras, 10 cherry shrimp, and two Amano shrimp. My original plan was to get the fish in this week then after a week or two bring in the shrimp. But I am getting tired of seeing all the diatoms and algae in the tank. Would it be a bad idea to start with the shrimp?
Sounds like a beautiful set-up!
