Hmmmm, right now that sounds like a good water change
Out of 100, I would recommend plants 1,000,000, they are very beneficial! They lower ammonia, nitrites, and get rid of other substances! Plus they look spectacular
Of course, it is a little more costly
I am adding sand in my 29 gallon for the plants and bottom dwellers, that's 45 bucks!
I'm also adding root tabs and liquid ferts, I add 5 tabs at a time, so the tabs last me for six months!
10 dollars every six months isn't that bad!
And the big liquid feet bottle is 10 dollars also, I need a new bottle every three months
But live plants are totally worth it!
