    Alright thanks OFL, I will have to keep records of when I set it up and all that.

    For stem plants I have rotala, lots and lots, hygro corymbosa, ludwigia, guppy grass, and wisteria. I have access to all those. I know I am gonna use the rotala as it roots very fast, but what other plant would go well? I plan on having Crypts in front and all the stems in a massive area in the back.

    Alright thanks OFL, my dad was saying that it is high in iron so I knew that it should be good. Now I just need to find a good pitting soil with no manure and not so much wood.

    For a newly set up tank without fish, maybe just some snails, how often should I be changing the water? I know to do lots of water changes at first because of the nutrients, I am just not sure on the frequentcy

    When setting up a NPT, how do you know if the dirt is really good or not? My Aunt has lots of dirt at her house, but I m not sure if it has lots of nutrients, also should I mix it with organic soil?

    Hey OFL! I had a question, would a 20 gal tank be too smal for amazon swords? I am planning on doing a NPT with my 20 gal and I have been told it is good or too small and I figured you would give me the BEST knowledge on the subject

    No one knows for sure, so I'll ask you....Do you have to do weekly water changes in a tank that is being cycled? There are no fish in it yet.
