Hi all. I'd like some planting advice for this very new, currently fishless cycling 10 gal
tank. I'm cycling with a dead prawn.
It has a PFS substrate with peat added - which I rinsed and rinsed for hours and hours in and out of the tank - and some kuhli hides made out of polished tiger's eye stones.
It has an Aqua One ClearView 280 HOB
It has a 2 ft Dalbarb brand fluoro light/hood with a Sylvania Aquastar F18w/174 t-8 1000k tube.
It has a scary high ph of 8.5 - straight from the tap! (The joys of living with torrential rain in the Wet Tropics.) I haven't tested the other parameters yet. I only set it up yesterday. I can already smell the prawn though.
I have a few plants in there already. I like the banana lilly, the hairgrass and the anubias on the driftwood.
I'd really like to do some carpeting and have a moss ball affect around the kuhli rocks.
I'd also really appreciate some guidance from other Aussies on good mail order aquatic plant people - my lfs
sucks bigtime for plants.
I'm going driftwood hunting tomorrow - IF the bloody rain stops!
I'd welcome advice and ideas.
This one in advance
