I just read on another post..
"but with carbon in your filter, I wouldn't recommend doing a planted tank, the carbon removes the nutrients the plants need."
Just wanted to get everyone't take on is this right?
I have had my tank up and running for 5 weeks with plants and 2 guppies who are doing great, but am having some algae trouble.
Should I take the carbon insert out of the filter and just have the sponge and bioMax filter inster?
Edited to add: I do a 30% waterchange once a week and add liquid fertilizer and used laterite in the gravel when I set up.
