Hello everyone, Ive been lurking on this website for a little bit and have seen that this is a friendly communtiy that knows what they are doing in regard to aquariums. So i thought i would ask some questions and see if i can get some clairification.
First off i was thinking about trying a fishless cycle but have read in a few spots that having plants that are fast growing and in decent enough numbers can rapidly speed up the cycle or avoid altogether. So i made up a plant order recently and would like to run it by you guys to see what your thoughts on it were.
2 melon swords
2 amazon swords
1 ozelot sword
3 water sprite
1 dwaf sagittaria
1 micro sword
My tank is a 29 gallon standard with a single T8 bulb lid, since aquarium kit lights are not normally enough for plants to grow under and went and upgraded the bulb to a zoomed ultrasun in the 65K range. If my understanding of lighting for aquarium plants is right that single to should give just enough light to grow most non stem plants. I also picked up some seachem root tabs and flourish comprehesive.
Oh and before i forget the conditions of the water is as follows
P.H. 6.5 to 6.6 kind of hard to tell on the api test for P.H.
Really appriate any answers i recieve and thanks for you time.
