Guppysnail Posted September 16, 2021 Share Posted September 16, 2021 (edited) I want these im afraid they may not grow here’s why: - i do not ever use fertilizer or root tabs in my aquariums ever. If a plant needs something I remove it to a cup on my windowsill with equilibrium and easy green I keep nitrate below 20 and am not willing to go higher. Plants are filter media to me I am a terrible aquascaper anyway 🤣 -if all plants need I will add 1/8 dose of equilibrium only into tank -no co2 - I allow nothing to root in substrate…I recently went bare bottom on the 4 I want this for the fifth it will be suction cupped to a wall. The four I do have flat planters with gravel that they will sit on top of gravel (see pictures) but those get vacuumed out regularly hard water 7.4-7.6 ph all tanks I use hygger lights full power 8 hrs 50% power 3 more hours but keep the red and blue off at all times. Algae never grows that way. Brown diatom comes even after years because of my sourcevwater which is about 10-15 nitrate sometimes 20-25 hate those times. Temp 77-78 things that readily grow for me hornwort Brazilian pennywort wisteria Asian fern super red ludwiga repens cardinal swords anubias Java fern moneywort lemon bacopa(sometimes) things that don’t red root floaters frogbit duckweed (yup what I don’t kill my kids eat) sprite tries but hates me bacopa Carolina mint Charlie I am asking because I am not willing to change things for a plant but this will be a large order and I don’t want to waste money on things that won’t do well Thank you in advance to all you aquascaping plant superstars (I am not🤣) here are the planters that plants sit on top of Edited September 16, 2021 by Guppysnail Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
