yea not all plants need extra attention just research them and see how much light they need and you will be fine.

Hihi. Thanks again for everyone's help and advice in this thread. Just checking back in to say how things are going.

4 days ago - 4 days after adding fish - my Ammonia and Nitrite spiked to 1ppm, with a reading of 0 for Nitrates. did a 30% water change, next day they were down to .25 and nitrates were up to 50. Did another 20% pwc yesterday, levels are at NH = 0, NO2 =0 and NH3 =25. The pH and KH readings also seem to have come down to from 7,6 to 7,2 and 6d.


So, I interpret this as all good. I guess the ammonia spike was due to the fish arriving and my bio filter is growing to accommodate then. The fish are looking healthy, bright stripes, no redness. My crinum plant has yellowing leaves and looks a bit sorry for itself but I think this is due to the move from shop to my house and it will recover soon enough. Is that right?

Marks out of 10 for competence appreciated.
