  1. That is true they have like 1 expert at each store but idk there always not there when I am. I usually have them asking me questions I’ve been keeping fish 30 years I’ve learned a little. Im just new to planted aquarium I’ve always preferred coral reefs. But atm can’t do it because $.
  2. algae is a big problem I had add 50 snails 30 shrimps some crabs and UV and it cleared up in a day. Not sure what did it but shrimp ate the heck out of it. But I’ll take pictures every week and send update in month.
  3. lol well Petco people have no clue they will sell you whatever. I talked to dude today said worker recommended he use flourish when he adds water. And he didn’t tell guy to use something like prime. I’d kill have local pet store but closes one is 2 hours away in big city. The only deal Ghosh salt and fresh.
  4. Doesn’t matter if you think they did it return but regardless go get money back. Bring water sample I just use bottle water there looking for reason not refund don’t give them one. I brought 6 glow tetras and 1 died my water lvls perfect but just give them 0 reason. Simple test kit will tell you if your the murder you should have one.
  5. Sweet thx 75 drops in 75 gallon raised it to 2ppm. So I’ll try maintain 1ppm see how fast other lvls climb. What danger zone for nitrites test kit says 5-10ppm?
  6. So I’m pretty sure this tank is cycled what’s safe amount ammonia add to tank 1ppm? I have dr Tim’s ammonia chloride solution it says 2ppm but do not exceed 5 ppm fishless cycle. but I have plants so is 1ppm safe on a planted 75gallon?
  7. Also I don’t need aerator when these light own there’s so much pearling I can see oxygen rising everywhere. My goal is to grow these plants fast as hell get them where I want them then add cheap 90$ lights Amazon. Slow growing less nutrients would be good if tank was grown out already.
  8. I would have gotten the aquarium coop fertilizer but I just spent like 150$ there and can’t just order it 1 thing free shipping requires 59$. He should really put it on Amazon it would blow up. But eventually I’ll switch to it guy on youtube seems cool and I’d rather support private business owner. Amazon is the devil!! But so cheap I’ll have flourish at my front door tomorrow!
  9. I would be worried if you have kids around I never had a glass tank above 300 gallons. And I’ve never seen tank flex I would just get thinker glass. I’ve had several 200-300 that did not flex any.
  10. I’m new to growing of aquarium plants so have question about lighting. i can use leds meant for plants on Amazon. (hygger Full Spectrum Aquarium Light) and I get maybe 10 pearls each plant very minor. About 15 inches from light. These lights look nice I’ll attack picture minor pearling. I have some leds meant grow weed. They have alot red to cause blooming. When I use these lights on aquarium plants 100% covered in pearls. And they seem grow like crazy. The lights kinda ugly not very pleasant to look at I don’t consider this a factor. Ignore quality plant I just got it today it will repair itself. So more pearls good or bad??

  12. Just use seachem prime everyday it’s safe your tank will cycle so buy your fish doesn’t matter. 1 dose every 24 hours or your fish die. or wait if you like add some fish food or ammonia and complete your cycle. Most fish places give 30 day return so whatever. Just return ones die with some bottle water so samples perfect and get a new one.
  13. Like 2 hours I just got the aquarium today here’s picture lady of the set up, in real dirt I’m using eco complete substrate. Here’s picture here set up major algae bloom she gave up.
  14. I was thinking about flourish seachem is that better api. The lights very intense I can turn reds off there meant make weed bloom. Pictures not great i have 3 of these plant light full spectrum off Amazon like see on last picture. My plants barley have oxygen bubbles on them. But when add these 2 expensive plant led lights the plant get covered in oxygen bubbles. I’m new to planted aquariums but I’d thing more photosynthesis is better.
  15. sorry about font I couldn’t fix it!! I brought this 75 gallon tank and it had these 30 plants. The women just gave up. I’m using Caribbean eco-complete planted substrate. Store only had 2 so I ordered 4 more. So if I need add ozmacote diy root tabs I can when i get more substrate. I have DIY c02 rolling on its good for 7-9 days I change it on Friday. So the lady had all these buried in substrate some kind of dirt. I have no ideal how to identify them if not supposed to be buried. Only fertilizer I’m using atm is leafzone api. And my leds or equal to the sun at 2 foot so good with lights. I guess I need feed tank ammonia since not going add fish for a few weeks until it’s stabilized. Any advice these dead looking plants? Wouldn't let me post video small one here’s a link might be better pictures. https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared/Y4kxCBMZQZi1QMkz0mpsIw.4l1wEp1bMkZ4n9-IQM43NJ
