Just 3-5 pellets a day. Nothing much.I'm still not sure what plants I am going to get. How much fish food should I be adding?
If you have time to spend on this forum, then you have time to look at plants online.I have been very busy rebuilding my pond filter. Once done, I will decide on plants for the 20 gallon. I am starting to reconsider the idea of building a controller to automate the lighting and air pump .
I use the green bottle, and my plants love it. It's made for heavily planted tanks with fast growing plants, both of which you'll have.
The plants will take care of any bad parameters.I wasn't able to order the fertilizer on the 3rd, but I am going to order it soon. Do I need to do water changes on the tank while it has no fish or plants, or just keep adding food?
How many Blue Diamonds? 10? 20? You want to start with those, so they can colonize. Once you start to see baby shrimp, you can buy the fish.For plants, I plan to get dwarf baby tears, two fllame swords, Staurogyne repens, rotala wallichii and Alternanthera reineckii.
For fish I plan to get 6 Asian stone cats, 6 Scarlet Badis, Blue Diamond Shrimp and 10 Celestial Pearl Danios.
10. You told me before to get the shrimp after the tank had been established for several months because they feed off of biofilm.How many Blue Diamonds? 10? 20? You want to start with those, so they can colonize. Once you start to see baby shrimp, you can buy the fish.
Baby tears grow slowly. It takes a while for them to grow in. I've had my Monte Carlo for about a month and it still hasn't completely filled in yet, and it's a fast growing plant. I wouldn't be surprised if your baby tears took 3-6 months to fill in since they grow slowly.A year?
