KittenFishMom Posted November 6, 2022 Share Posted November 6, 2022 I am getting ready to build my 55 gallon tank and am about to order plants. Most plant descriptions talk about lighting needs and fertilizer. I haven't found any that talk about pH, GH or KH. My well water has no calcium or magnesium, but the HK is twice the max recommended for fish. I always have driftwood, and IAL in the tanks, as well as extra air stones. I plan to stock with the fish I have: peppered corys, neon tetras, kuhli loaches, yoyo loaches, maybe some male guppies and maybe a male betta, and scuds and snails. I want some low carpeting plants for the front. I have a few tall ones for the background. I am running a air test on my water in an open bucket with an air stone. and another with an active sponge filter and a heater. Second test is to see If I can lower the 0.5 Ammonia before adding it to the tank. ACO is running a plant sale, so I would like to buy the carpeting plants there before the sale ends. Any ideas, suggestions or advice are welcome. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
