20 gallon paradise or nightmare???
I've had a 10 gallon tank set up for 3 years with a plecostomus equal the same age. I just recently set up a 20 gallon tank with the 3 year old plecostomus, with the addition of a panda butterfly and plan to add another in the future. I think everything is in place, gravel with white ribbon and onion plants. A high flow filter with biowheel, a 200 gph underwater pump with an established biowheel courtesy of Keller Farms in Haltom, Tx. I'm using Seachem gravel supplements for the plants as apposed to a CO2 cannister and everything is in place I think...High light during the day, low at night. But I just wanted to know if there is anything I need for succesful plants, and also my plecostomus isn't as active and the sister to my panda butterfly(moore) just died before i added the established biowheel courtessy Keller Farms...Am I missing anyhting key??? That isn't obvious (heater, bubble wand etc.) Just want to start a great functioning enviriment for panda butterflys. Thanks for your help!
hello there,Welcome aboard,
hopefully someone will be along shortly to move
this for you,so you can get the help you need.
This section will provide you with more response. :D
Have you been testing the water for ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate? I know it's a simple and obvious thing, but very important. Espeically prior to putting in the established filter. There could have easily been a spike in ammonia that killed the panda butterfly.
are the panda butterflys (moores) gold fish?
(i tried searching panda butterfly moore but google wasnt working properly)
cos if thats the case it could be that your water is perfect for your plec but not good for your moore...... as moores prefer non heated water
feel free to correct me if im wrong
What pleco do you have?
