Of course I remember...lol......you have to be careful moving things and pulling plants in a newly set-up soil based tank-it may be safer for the livestock to remove them if you chose to do that-you can have dead spot (anaerobic) under rocks, disruption of roots and soil can foul the tank-moving the filter to the other side should be fine-once the soil has matured and started it submersed life it can be a bit safer to make big changes- at this stage I would only make small changes and be really careful when you do and always plan a big water only change when you do it. Good luck.....
Hi :) Do you emember that shrimp tank I started a while ago ? Well its been up and running for 3 weeks now with 12 red cherry shrimp and 3 betta fry. Well my qeustion is - is it ok to rearrange things like the plants and rocks because at the moment im not happy with my aquascape? And is it ok to move my filter the other side of the tank?
What fin type is he and what is your pH/KH/GH readings
I wouldn't do 100% water changes in a filtered tank-not needed-twice weekly 50% should be enough to maintain water quality
When you use oak leaf they need to be removed and replaced once a week
Are you sure he is not tail biting-make a new thread and post a pic on the main board/forum
Hey Oldfishlady! I just need some advice. Ares' rays are still melting. It's been pretty bad recently. I think sooner or later, all his fins will be melted. I do daily 20% water changes and a 100% every week. He's in a filtered 2.5 gallon. I've already tried oak leaves, but it gets moldy and doesn't seem to work. I have aquarium salt, too, but I'm not using it. Thanks!
I PM'd you some pics......
I don't use just sand only about 1 inch on top of the soil to hold it down-I don't use or need root tabs-but with just sand I would use root tabs. I get my sand at walmart for $4/50# play sand for kids sand box.
