Here's the deal:
I have a planted tank (well, kind of) and it's driving me nuts. I have 3" of Aqua Soil and I really like the looks of the stuff. I put in some plants a month ago and now I have snails. A week ago I started getting worms in the tank too. A bit of algae as well.
It's pissing me off.
I don't have any fish. I was going to add them after the plants took hold.
Now I want to rip out the plants, the CO2
, etc and just go with fish.
How does Aqua Soil work with fish only... I can't use a Python because that kicks up silt. Do I just let the poop sit there?
How do I get rid of the algae (it's just starting... I added something from Tetra and it worked pretty well to kill it)?
What should I do with the soil and stuff? Dry it out to kill everything or just let it sit in tap water to kill the worms and stuff?
ANY insight would be appreciated!
