    image.jpg I’m pretty new to this hobby and learning all I can. I have a 29 gallon bow front with a aquean 55. It’s home to 7adult platys and 2 fry along with a dwarf Blue gourami, common pleco (who I’m going to have to get rid of) and a red fin shark, and finally a myster snail. The 3 plants in front are Anubis. The sword plant in back and a few westiria I’m trying to get to root and 3 moss balls. Water parameters are ph 7.5 alkalinity 120 hardness 25 ammonia 0 nitriate 0 nitrate 30. So far the bioload seems okay I’m on 3 months of running this set up.

    Are the anubias planted in the gravel? These plants should be grown attached to decor or the rhizome (the thing that looks like a thick root) will rot. The tiny roots are OK if they reach down the gravel, it's the rhizome that must not be buried.

    Yes they are. I hadn’t had them before and they almost died, but they seem to have self corrected and are growing. The rhizome is growing across the gravel now.

    Hi and welcome.

    I like your tank, you need more plants . Like I always say, " you can never have too many plants "
