if you can't accept that it is not an ammonia to ammonium conversion, there really is no point in trying to explain

People like beaslbob and OldFishLady and Byron, who have the capacity and feeling to grow things, are truly blessed.

FWIW I find the less I do the better the plants grow.

From what I hear Anubias are slow growers so unless you have lotsa and lots of them you probably won't get the aquarium balanced out.

But that's just what I hear.

Worth at most.


maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)
