new additions to the 29g
check out the new additions (gravel and mondo grass) to the 29g tank
here are the parameters of all my tanks
the ammonia is 0 yeaaaa
the gh is 25
ph is still 7.6
kh is 300
nitrates are 0
nitrites are .5 ppm
I think we are starting to move along in the cycling process and all fishies are swimming and healthy looking :-D
cute guppies :-D
If you have not mixed up the nitrite reading with Nitrates, then water changes to keep nitrites closer to zero are needed if fish are to remain healthy.
Don't believe Mondo grass is true aquatic plant, and you may wish to google this to be sure.
Plant's that are not true aquatic plant's ,seldom do well for long and then they simply rot, and can foul the water.
As mentioned, Mondo Grass is not aquatic, it may last a couple weeks, but will eventually die if left submerged.
Mondo Grass, scientifically Ophiopogon japonicus, is not a true aquatic, but it can last months if not years in aquaria, ironically. Can go either way, so before you pull it out (which you should do if it begins to rot apart), leave it and it may last a time.
who sold you those lies-i myself will not get live plants again. my tank was infested with snails many years ago.
Byron I have already had to trim some discolored leaves off of the mondo grass but other than that it seems to be healthy for now and I think I am going to leave it untill I can get more of the plants I want.
By the way where is the best online place to order live plants from???
As for live plants, the benefits of these cannot be overstated. Nature's way of keeping the aquarium healthy is always easier and more likely to succeed.
i love the pesky MTS.they aerate the soil no other snail can do this they way they do it.they are little angels that keep the tank clean to some extent ( they vacuum long leaves),aerate the soil, and do waste disposal for the fish.
