Scott Stevenson Posted February 5, 2022 Share Posted February 5, 2022 I have a 20g tank that previously held cold water, low pH, soft water fish. The tank was fully cycled and might still be, in a low key way. I have some pest snails in it right now and I also have started ghost feeding the tank tiny amounts of Hikari freeze dried daphnia. Currently I have Pogostemon, Pothos and a small amount of regrowth Jave fern being kept under the previously mentioned parameters. I add ferts on a weekly basis and there are signs of some brown algae growth. I want to start preparing the tank for Platys, meaning I will start heating the tank and bumping up the pH and the hardness. I want to leave the plants in place as they are starting to look good. Am I correct in assuming, that I will have to gradually change the water parameters in order to not shock the plants too much? I'm not too worried about the Pothos, it's pretty hardy, but I worry that I will lose the headway that I'm starting to see on the other plants.
