Alan W Posted October 29, 2020 Share Posted October 29, 2020 HELLO! I am setting up my first planted tank, but have had other aquariums for a while. I've done my research and really like what the Aquascaping world is doing, especially some of the guys in Asia and Europe. I know I cant get so crazy right off the bat, but I really want to work up to that. So that being said. I am working on a low tech, low light, easy plant, "first aquascape". I'd like to do some carpeting plant in a section of the design, but realize that probably wont happen with my setup. Aubias, Java Fern, Cryptocoryne, and Red Lotus are on my short list of plants so far. I have decided to use Nerite Snails, Amano Shrimp, maybe small algae eating fish, possibly cherry shrimp, and a mix of tetra or similar size fish. I plan on using RO water, and I know I have to re-mineralize it. Can anyone recommend anything that they use? I am looking at fertilizers and I keep coming back to the Aquarium Co-Op. What is the Carbon Fertilizer for? Will it help with low tech / non CO2 tanks? Is it fish and shrimp safe too? And I guess same thing for the Iron.
