Is there a thread on how to start, what parameters and do's and don'ts for a naturally planeted tank? I was just curious I'm not interested in doing one but more just to have the knowledge handy. Like the cycling guide or the acclimation guide we have for the bettas and their tanks.
For fin rot-I would start with 1tsp/gal for minor...if pretty severe I would start with 2tsp/gal....also tannins are good to add along with 100% daily water changes for 10 days while in a small QT container....
Hi OFL. I have yet another question :P I want a BN pleco for my 29 gallon, and I know they need driftwood fiber to help with digestion. I bought something similar, Mopani Wood I believe it's called. It's real wood, it leaches tannins and all. Apparently it's some sort of African HardWood. My question is, will a BN pleco be able to get the fibers from this? Thanks!
Hey Ofl, I need to bother you with a question! Sorry lol!
Would my betta fry/ eggs (if and when they arrive) be adversely affected by mosquito repellent? The kind you plug in and it dissapates into the air like a room freshner? I've had my bettas with no problems with it on but fry maybe more delicate and I was wondering whether it would be a problem for them? Thanks :)
I was going to get Green Cabomba, which I think is good because it sucks up a ton of ammonia and propogates easily :) this is in like 1.5-2 months, I was going to wait until it cycles( to make sure it is, I'm waiting until about halfway thru October), get the tetras, QTing them, waiting, yadayadayada.....thanks for your help!
In a 29gal filtered tank with that stocking...you should be fine...and if you have lots of live plants-you could do 2....be sure to have some wood in the tank too-since BN plecos need it for digestion......and a cave or two for it/them to hide in and/or spawn in if you get a pair.....
Hi OFL, I know you breed BN plecos and was interested I getting one. I heard they need like 20 gallons of space, but bioload-wise will be good with 10 gallons per fish. I wanted it for my 29 gallon, which has 6 Zebra Danios in it right now. I was going to get 6 Neon Tetras in the future, after it cycles. The filter is a Top Fin 30, which does 150 GPH. My question is, would this be overstocking, and, if not, will it work? Thanks!
