QT set up?
i just set my 10 gal. tank up,as a QT tank. it has aqua-tech 5/15 hob,tetra 50 watt submersible heater,pre set for78 deg.added tetra safe conditioner & floss from existing filter.bare bottom,no gravel.? is can i put plants in now. i saw some i liked but, had to many snails on them so didn't get them.don't want them in my big tank.
Yes, you can put plants in right away.
thanks that's all i needed to know:-D
got home from dinner, checked on tank have slow leak on bottom right front corner:cry: trying trick my mother used to do,put newspaper where leak is until it stops. have to replace when it gets soaking wet. if slow leak it usually stops.will let everyone how it turns out.
The slow leaks usually stop by themselves. Good luck.
okay, i got some new plants crypto undulata, crypto crispatula var. balansae & some anacharis how long do you keep in QT? already killed about 10 snails. 2 plants are in pots, should i take them off now or wait till i put in main tank? 1 more ? do i have to test water,only up 5 days.:-?
I would leave the plants in the pots/bunches until you are ready to plant them in the display tank. This will avoid disturbing the roots twice.
Water test, is this in the QT?
