It's roughly 30 litres & has 4kg of blue & black gravel, 3 (as yet unidentified) plants, a resin bridge & a filter.
I've poured in the fish & tap water conditioner, started up the filter & am currently doing my best not to move anything around anymore!
I was told by Pets At Home (where I bought all the stuff) to put the conditioner in today & add some 'stresszyme" (a biological filtration booster) tomorrow.
Already I have quite a few questions though.
#1 My plants are currently in terracota pots which I was told is how I should leave them - does that sound right? & should I be digging them into the gravel a bit? & am I going to need some plant food/what should I be looking for? I'll upload some photos as soon as I figure out how, so hopefully someone will be able to indentify them for me? ^__^;;
#2 It's currently not got a heater so are there any nice fish you'd suggest? Also I'm told it's good to have a fish which likes to eat up the algae - any suggestions?
#3 I've got a gravel cleaner, a net & various jugs etc - is there anything else I'll need except food & fish? (I'm going to be leaving a bucket outside to collect rainwater for water changes)..
