My tank is 37 gallons with rounded small pebbles/river stones for substrate.
My tank is planted with: Planted with 2 moss balls, Java Moss
, peacock fern (Selaginella Wildenowii), coconut (Peliosanthes Speciies), Argentine Sword (Echinodorus Argentiensis), gold ribbon (Dracaena Variegatus), broadleaf sageterias and Penny Wort.
The only plant that seems to be suffering is the Penny Wort. I have it floating and the snails like to sit on it.
There is a piece of drift wood.
I have 3 red platies (xiphophorus maclatus) plus fry, 3 and
6 neon tetras. I also had 3 panda cories that died just this week. :(
The snail do not appear to be MTS. I looked up some info on snails and it looks like I have at least 2 different kinds that fall into the ramshorn type and pond snail type.
My light is on a timer for 8 hours and is a plant light (30", 25w)
Top Fin Power Filter
I have an air stone.
PH from my tap is 7.8 but my tank is usually 6.8-7.0
0 nitrites, 0 amonia, slight reading on the nitrates (there are nitrates in my tap water).
There is also some phosphates in my tap water. I got something from the fish store to put in my filter to take of these problems but I can't remember the name of it. The fertilizer I use does not have phosphates in it.
Thank you for your help.
