    48l Tropical Aquarium

    Tank Update! So a few months down the line and my swords have grown rather big. My tank is now like a bit of forest, and my little neons love to swim in and out between the leaves.

    Well i never would of thought that! thanks for the tip. If the roots on the plant are black, does that mean that individual one is dead ?

    That’s excellent then! Do you know much about Salvinia Auriculata ? and any useful information i should know about them. I’ve noticed that some of mine seem to be off colour. they look black, but it seems the leaves are more transparent, and the roots are black

    48l Tropical Aquarium

    oh well maybe i will consider some then. is there a minimum of them i would have to have though ? because i definitely wouldn’t like to overcrowd my tank! and a 50% water change would be no problem at all. i have plenty of buckets ahah! and okay i will try and do a little bit of research on E...

    You really think my tank would be suitable to add some dwarf corys to it ? would that not be too much of a fish load ? and yeah, i didn’t realise amazon swords could grow so big, until posting them in this thread! and yes they were sold to me as Echinodorus bleheri! So you’re saying my amazon...

    48l Tropical Aquarium

    Yeah thats good to hear then. i have read a little bit about them. I had my tank originally set up since the start of march, but towards the end of april i noticed these tiny white dots on the glass of my tank, and i panicked. did some research and read up that they could be a type of worm, that...

    yeah i read up a fair bit on filters, and the media. and yeah apparently they tell you to change the cartridges monthly because the carbon begins to leak into the aquarium. and definitely don’t want that, but also dont want to be throwing away all the beneficial bacteria that grows on the filter...

    48l Tropical Aquarium

    Right okay, i’ll keep a close eye on it! and the filteration seems fine. i have the interpet CF filter that came with the tank. except i haven’t used the cartridges that come with the filter, instead I have cut up my own filter sponge, and placed that in, and used some filter floss, and used...

    Yeah i am testing my water ever week with the API Master test kit. and i have spent many hours researching all about the nitrogen cycle, so i’m pretty clued up on that! which in the past, keeping goldfish i was never aware of! I will definitely hold off on getting any shrimp anytime soon then...
