I'm getting more interested in this previously neglected tank (http://www.qldaf.com/forums/general-aquarium-discussion-19/wtd-low-maintenance-aquarium-design-ideas-129491/). I bought some soil today (http://www.thetechden.com.au/ADA_Amazonia_Soil_9l_p/104-021.htm) in preparation for some proper planting. I was wondering if the nutrients will leech into the water, thus fertilising a little anubia I have attached to some driftwood?
I have an internal filter that allows for small cartridges of activated carbon to be inserted above the sponge. Will this carbon rob the tank of the micro-nutrients that I add to feed the aquarium plants? Like the copper, boron, iron, etc...
.What products do people recommend for a beginners planted tank? We have a 3ft we're planning to set up as our first planted tank and so far have a small CO2 kit. We're after cost efficient recommendations for substrate options & plant nutrients. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
It seems being new to planted aquarium I have made a faux pas. The planting medium for the glossostigma is made up of Fluorite and nothing else. It has been mentioned to me that over time due to the high levels of exposure, the fluorite will leach nutrients into the water column. I take it that this could fuel an algae take over. I am thinking of covering the fluorite with fine gravel, trying not to disturb the plants too much. Has anyone had experience with this type of situation. Would the reward to prevent excessive nutrients getting into the water ,out way damaging new plants that are still finding their feet. Thanking you in advance for your help.
