Bekah's (way more than) $15 investment (finally!!!)
This is a discussion on Bekah's (way more than) $15 investment (finally!!!) within the Freshwater Journals forums, part of the Aquarium Photography category; -->
I have either the III or IV on my 29, so two of the Vs should be fine...
The faster the water is turned over the lower the concentration of ammonia in the water entering the filter. It's like vacuuming - the longer you wait the more stuff there is to suck up. There is a maximum capacity (ammonia concentration) of the media in the filter. Increasing the turnover rate means the same volume of media can handle a larger bioload.
I'm so happy for you, Bek! Can't wait to see where this tank ends up!!!
If my lotus continues to do well, I may have a woObie to share come spring/summer. . .
I love your sketch, lol. Just a bunch of green scribbles - my kind of tank!
Frogbit isn't a BIG floater, lol. And it will block a lot of the light. My fave so far is watersprite, but there are a lot that I have yet to try! ^__^
Lol maybe I'll skip out entirely on floaters. My pennywort grows like crazy, maybe it'll fool possible gourami into thinking they float. Same with if I get a lotus!!
As for stocking, I 100% want a female bristlenose pleco, and kuhli loaches. I'd also like diamond tetra- I had seen them in so many videos on youtube and couldn't figure out what they were and NOW I know!! I'd also like color, and Josh suggested dwarf neon rainbows. So maybe those or cardinal tetra, depends on what I find. And then I think I want pearl gourami. All those plus the fish I already have should make for a pretty nice group. Posted via Mobile Device
