Ursus Major Posted June 6, 2021 Share Posted June 6, 2021 So I’m new to fishing keeping hobby and I wanna have a planted tank, I currently have a 5 gallon planted tank with amazon swords and Java ferns that’s doing well. I wanna plant a 20 gallon but I’m having some confusion. If plants prefer to grow in a slightly acidic environment, how do you also grow beneficial bacteria for the nitrogen cycle? As I understand it, the bacteria needed for the cycle grow best at around 7.0 ph and will slow down in growth as the ph drops. How do you keep a tank cycled, while also having slightly acidic water for the plants and fish? Should also state that id like to have 6 kuhli loaches for this build.
