Ryan S. Posted February 20 Share Posted February 20 Starting a new aquascaped aquarium in my main room. Trying active substrate for the first time. For the scape I'm planning a tree root thing in the corner and was planning on using the Pothos roots I currently already have in the tank as part of it. My question is... Will Pothos out compete my plants for the water column ferts? I haven't made the change to the tank yet but currently the Pothos pretty much keeps nitrates at zero but I'm not dosing anything, only about 20 dwarf rainbows and a bristlenose pleco in there. My question on active substrate. I have heard when putting in an active substrate it can take awhile for the cycle to really set in. I am using stratum. Is this still true if I'm able to put my two seeded filters on the tank after? I assume this would help speed up the process but since I haven't done active substrate before, was curious. I'll be monitoring it close and there is no rush. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
