Hi everyone!

I am new to this forum. I am glad that I have found it, I hope to get answers to my questions here. I have 20 gal tank, I got it as a kit from Petco. I am trying to grow plants there and lost so many fish already since I started this tank about two years ago. Some fish lived for as long as 6 months, and other just for a month or two. I had two or three ich spikes. Dwarf gourami is the only one left at this time, after last treatment for ich. And I am proud of my Amazon Sword - it likes my tank

Welcome to AA!

I like planted! Is this a 20 long or high?
And are you adding root tabs to your amazon sword?
Welcome!

Amazon swords are root feeders, meaning they get the nutrients they need through their roots, liquid ferts won't really help, root tabs are a much better option, once you add them, your amazon sword will flourish
