I've got a cycled tank which started with dry rock and sand. It's got some diatoms and a bit of hair algae from the one piece of "real" LR
that's in there. I'm running a sponge in there for a week to move to my new QT
, at which point I'll finally get a fish (it's been 2 months since I bought the tank!)
I'm thinking of stopping by the LFS
today to pick up some pods
, a few snails (astarea?) and maybe another piece or two of LR
Do I need to QT
any of this? Can snails/rock carry ich?
