Tinyfellows Posted February 27, 2021 Share Posted February 27, 2021 Hello 4 weeks ago I started my 5 gallon planted tank. I started the tank with plants in it from day one Plant list:Crypt parvaWater spriteDwarf water lettuce Pogostemon stellatus octopusCrypt lucensI am using hob filterI have a heater that holds the tank at 76 degrees And a stingray finnex light after two weeks my water parameters have been stable atPh 7.2Ammonia .25 ppm (it seems other people using api master test will get this reading alwaysNitrite 0 ppmNitrate 5 ppmGh 150Kh 80 after two weeks I added a nerite snail who is happily cruising around cleaning my glass. I also have some rams horn baby snails who came with my plants I have left in the tank.I was planning on getting 6-8 least rasboras, 10 cherry shrimp, and two Amano shrimp. My original plan was to get the fish in this week then after a week or two bring in the shrimp. But I am getting tired of seeing all the diatoms and algae in the tank. Would it be a bad idea to start with the shrimp? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
