Dan T. Posted April 29, 2021 Share Posted April 29, 2021 Hi Everyone, My first aquarium is now over a year old. I've had excellent results with my plants: Anubias, Java Fern, Java Moss, Cryptocoryne, and Water Sprite. I tried Dwarf Chain Sword but the light in my 15 gallon Fluval Flex isn't powerful enough to grow a carpet. All the plants have grown tremendously and I now need to thin and rescape as there isn't much room for the fish to swim in. Water conditions have remained at zero for ammonia, nitrites and nitrates since the aquarium cycled. Should I save a third of the substrate to keep beneficial bacteria and rinse the rest? I plan on not rinsing the sponges and bio material in the filter section and keeping them in a bucket with aquarium water and an air stone. Thanks for any helpful information. Dan T.
