Only one of my tanks has an actual light, an led, but it is only on if I go in to see him at night. All of my tanks only have indirect light all day, the tanks with no lights have table lamps, again they are only on when I need to see the fish at night or do water changes etc. So, is there a particular plant that would do well with this kind of lighting?
My personal favorite floating plant is-Water lettuce, next is frogbit and duckweed...You also have hornwort that is a good floating plant, however, it can sometimes be picky and will drop its needles and make a mess and if the light is too high in watts or too close it can get hair algae. You also have water wisteria and water sprite that can be used as a floater.
Hey OFL...what is a good floating plant for unfiltered tank. My room has two widows, and that is the light I use during the day, though no direct sunlight. I need something easy enough for a newbie, but beneficial to both tank and betta, thanks!
Hey OFL, yes, it's me, here again lol. Sorry to bother you but I have a quick question. Can the in tank filter vibration irritate/cause anxiety in a fish? Beau never seemed to settle in his 5.5, I put him in the 1g bowl last night, and even though not eating yet, he is not swimming erratically back and forth anymore..seems calmer. I put my newest betta in the 5.5 with that filter, and I don't want to drive him "mad" if that is what is happening. The filter is on the lowest setting, but placing my fingers on the glass I can feel it vibrating. Thanks
Yeah, I just bought a vacuum and turkey baster finally and use it with every partial I do. Gosh, I guess I just hope I'm doing everything right for them. Sometimes the more I read the less confident I get lol. Both Buddy and Bella seem to be doing really well, so I need to trust myself more. Hugs for all your help and kindness!
DOC's..Dissolved organic compounds....this builds up and need to be removed manually along with your weekly water changes and why you shouldn't base water change needs on water prams alone.....
