I have planted some lettuce, and I have read "fish emulsion" is a good fertilizer. Well, I was thinking maybe I could save my water and water my plants with it on occasion (of course id avoid getting it on the leaves). I was wondering if anyone knew if any of the AquaSafe or the Flourish fertilizer I use would be harmful to plants I am going to be eating. Or if anyone had an idea. :)
In my 44g aquarium, I have a "pile up" of waste in the gravel it seems to me. Since it is heavily planted, I am not sure how to get this cleaned. Any suggestions?
Have used old aquarium water,cow manure,rabbit manure,and remains of fish I have cleaned in the garden and don't believe there is much harm.Frequently use water from water changes on house plants and they thrive.
For removing waste from around the plant's in the aquarium, I might remove the big end from gravel vaccum or python, and stick the smaller end near the plant's to vaccum up the waste.
This also works well for baiting, and then sucking up snails when they get too numerous.
The smaller diameter hose has more suction capabilities than the large end attached to the syphons and will allow you to get in between plants easier.
