Thanks guys! It's funny, 10 years ago my mother came home with a gold fish and put it in a punch bowl. Since then I've always had interest in taking care of fish but only recenty(1 year) have I got more serious about it. So now I have a 29 gallon planted tank with co2
injection. I have defiantly had my issues along the way but the tank is looking very good now. So I found a tank on a job site and am almost ready to get it going. I want to put cardinals and discuses. I have heard that they require more specific needs than the tetras and dwarf gouriami that I have now. So because of this I have decided to take more time with the tank than my first one. I am buying a multiple test kit to really make sure I do it right. So finally to my questions. Everything I learned about co2
injection I copied from my local fish store. I know that the more co2
I put into the water the lower the ph goes but I feel like there is a better way of making this calculation. Not about the ph but about how much co2
does the tank require. I was basically going to run the co2
on the new tank until I reached my desired ph but I'm not sure this is the right thing.
On a separate note I personally feel like a Siamese algae eater is vital to a planted aquarium. I had so much trouble finding them here as there are much confusion about these magnificent fish. I was able to order them from a local PET store out of all places. I bought 2 and everything was good for several months and all of a sudden they both died. I'm trying to get the same pet store to order again but they are on backorder. Is there possibilities of ordering fish and plants online???
Thanks so so so much for your time
