Let me begin this post with a warning: I am a complete idiot when it comes to raising freshwater aquarium plants.
And fish, for that matter. But I digress.
I am currently attempting to plant an Amazonian/South American tank. I already have a few amazon swords (which refuse to grow and also refuse to die) and a piece of driftwood. It's a twelve gallon tank with gravel substrate, a florescent light bulb of unknown wattage, and a three stage biowheel filter. I know nothing of fertilizers, CO2 levels, or anything else I probably should know. I feed the swords Flourish brand plant supplement once a week. What plants/ lightbulb/accessories/whatever should I get to grow the beautiful plants I'm looking for?
