Home style of making plant food?
Today I went to petco, they had a sale on Cherry Barbs, 5 for 5, so I got 5 and a plant for $2.99
About 3 months ago I had decided to go with a 10 per month plan of getting fish, plants, ect for the aquarium. Today I have $1.57 of change left. The thing is my tank has sand substrate and I want to get these plant food tablets but they where $7.99 and since my tank already has a bunch of java moss and an Anubia, water quality is the best ever. I want to give my plants some food or fertilizer to make then all happy. I want to get them next month and before that I was wondering if anyone now another way to get then some food. The only thing that I can think of is putting some fish food, brine shrimp, in the bottom of the sand to add more ammonia to give the plants food. The thing is that plants can just live off of ammonia alone.
What do you guys do to add more food for your plants. I am a newbie when it comes to plant keeping but bare with me.
